Sylvan Esso is most definitely back!
The duo of Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn on Friday revealed their brand new record No Rules Sandy. And "no rules" is certainly true, as they showcase their wonderful, most uninhibited material yet, a creation primarily over the course of three weeks in a small Los Angeles rental home earlier this year.
"Even if we weren't feeling good, we would just sit down and try to make something," says Meath. "Pretty much every day that we did that, we got a song that we liked."
The singer notes it "feels like who we actually are. It just feels like us. We're not trying to fit into the mold, just happily being our freak selves."
Adds Sanborn: "I think that the ultimate effect of our last record and the pandemic has been the feeling of like, 'Fuck that, I know what I want. And it's now, or never. So let's get out there and do it."
Hear the glorious goodness now in full.
