New Audio: JOVM Mainstay Sylvan Esso Return with Another Radio Friendly Song

Continuing the ongoing focus on this site’s mainstay artists, if you had been frequenting this site over the past couple years, you would have come across several posts on electro pop duo Sylvan Esso. Comprised of Mountain Man‘s Amelia Heath (vocals, synths) and Megafaun‘s Nick Sanborn (synths, programming, production)  electro pop duo Sylvan Esso dominated the blogosphere two years ago for a sound that paired Heath’s coquettish vocals with a slick and somewhat sparse production featuring propulsive and undulating grooves, shimmering synths and big, tweeter and woofer beats.

Earlier this year, I wrote about “Radio,” the A side of their recently released “Radio”/”Jump Kick Start.” Interestingly, “Radio” quickly became both a staple of their live sets and a fan favorite — all while being a brash, refinement of their sound with Heath singing with a self-assured sultriness paired with a propulsive, dance floor-friendly production featuring cascading synths, wobbling low end and stuttering drum programming. “Jump Kick Start” the B side of the “Radio”/”Jump Kick Start” continues on a similar vein as the preceding single as Heath’s self-assured coos are paired with a stuttering and shuffling production featuring electronic bleeps and bloops, twinkling synths and analog crackling in what may be one of their most radio and dance floor-ready songs they’ve released to date.
