Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn of Sylvan Esso tell WUNC's Eric Hodge about all the latest happenings ahead of their European tour.
After a year on the road, Durham-based duo Sylvan Esso has gathered pals for a concert and campout near home this weekend. They'll join tUnE-yArDs, Wye Oak, Helado Negro and Well$ at Shakori Hills Saturday.
Sylvan Esso’s music comes with a certain digital reality. It’s devoid of the oft-shallow feel of some electro-pop songs that are just about parties or typical relationship fodder. This maintains an earthiness that it takes a band from North Carolina to possess.
