Synthpop duo and all-around pop powerhouses Sylvan Esso released spirited single “PARAD(w/m)E” today, their first new release since 2017’s sophomore LP, What Now. Characterized by a groovable BPM (116, for those counting at home – or out on the dancefloor), crunchy low-end synth hits, and bubbly, percolating synthlines, the duo crafts a fun yet progressive pop track in terms of production. Amelia Meath’s vocals have the power to transport you to brighter warmer days, enticing the listener to “P A R A D with me.”
Performed live for the first time on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the duo enlist Amber Coffman and Wye Oak’s Jenn Wasner for backup vocals. Watch the live performance below.
Sylvan Esso perform at WXPN’s XPoNential Festival at the BB&T Pavilion Stage Friday, July 27th. The duo joins Talking Heads founding member David Byrne as headliners for Friday night of the festival. Tickets for the pavilion seating are on sale now, for more updates and information on the festival, visit the XPN Fest website.
