Advance Review - Sylvan Esso: Free Love (September 25, 2020)
Sylvan Esso are back with their first studio release since 2017 and we're all about it. The indie-pop duo of Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn make it look effortless with their new release Free Love, which drops everywhere Friday. Led by singles "Ferris Wheel", "Frequency" and "Rooftop Dancing", Free Love effortlessly blends indie, pop, and electronic sounds for a genre-bending album that's full of catchy melodies and vocals.
Free Love is full of diversity in its tracks. From the light and beat-filled "Runaway" to the more subdued "Free", Free Love has a little something for everyone. Meath's vocals are also on full display throughout the album as she shows off a good bit of range, especially in some of the sampled vocal selections. There are moments on Free Love go smaller with their sound such as "Free" and other points where they up the ante to a sound that feels more grand, especially on the final track "Make it Easy".
Free Love has a lot to offer its listeners as an album. It brings light poppy indie tracks that have a knack for great beats, something that is a Sylvan Esso signature. Sylvan Esso continue to stand apart from other groups on the indie scene and we love that they can continue to bring something fresh on their third release. Free Love just begs to be danced to and even more sang along to. We can't wait for you to take it in.
