There’s nothing I love more than an electropop song that has every element in place – great singing, catchy beats, and infectiously dancy. When singer-songwriter Amelia Meath had first written “Play It Right”, it was a folk song for her trio Mountain Man. Then she met electronic producer Nick Sanborn aka Made of Oak and a partnership now known as Sylvan Esso emerged. It was an ideal music match from the get go.
Next week, their self-titled debut LP will be out via Partisan Records. Listen to the album in full now on NPR and pre-order it here. They’re opening for tUnE-yArDs at The Fonda on June 5. Get your tickets here.
