I first found Sylvan Esso on one of those Spotify genre playlists. I had really gotten into the Evening Chill and Lush + Atmospheric playlists when I first moved into my apartment in Manhattan back in October 2014. Their single "Coffee" was on one of those playlists (although now I can't seem to find it). Maybe it was on my Discover Weekly? Regardless...nobody puts me in a great mood like Sylvan Esso does.
They played The Meadows Music and Arts Festival at Citi Field this past October. They were my first set at the festival and definitely one of the best I saw that weekend. I'm writing about them because I have tickets to see them in May at Brooklyn Steel and I'm so excited to see them headline their own show, especially because their new album will be out by then.
Can't wait for them to melt my face off!
