You can find Sylvan Esso on all the top lists of up and coming bands to know this year. Amelia Meath originally from the band Mountain Man, and Nick Sanborn from Megafaun created the electropop band Sylvan Esso last year in North Carolina. Meath and Sanborn met a few years back while Mountain Man was playing a gig with Sanbourn, and their styles meshed perfectly. Check out this great in-depth interview from Tucson Weekly.
The two stayed in touch, and a few later they decided to collaborate together; thus Sylvan Esso was born.
Be sure to check them out on October 24th when they hit up Union Transfer in Philadelphia. But tickets here.
