Riding huge waves of praise following the release of their glistening self-titled debut album, Sylvan Esso release new single ‘Hey Mami’ – a fan favourite and online hit – on August 18th. With their debut UK & European headline tour to follow at the end of September.
A swirling contortion of Amelia Meath’s dizzying melodies and Nick Sanborn’s heady electronic productions, ‘Hey Mami’ is an addictive, inventive earworm, its playful vocal chants bounding over bold swathes of bass.
The band recorded this remarkable acoustic version of the single (see above video), complete with brass section and wine bottle solo.
