Known many years for her jazzy sound, Australian singer/songwriter Esmé started to unveil, a few months ago, a whole new world where electronic flirts with trap broken beats. Preserving her soulful aura in the process, she painted this new picture with the help of top producers Royce Wood Junior (NAO, Jamie Woon), Twilite Tone (Kanye West, Gorillaz) and Chris Penning in fall 2018 in Brooklyn, New York. Together, they crafted an electro soul EP that will see the light of the day next year.
But until then, Esmé decided to surprise her fans by revisiting her debut single, Come with me. Initially released in 2017, the sultry track has been restyled by German producer Amillian to match the artist’s new musical direction. “After Brooklyn, it made sense to bring Come with Me into the family of new intimate electro sounds and heavier beats, she continues. Using the same vocal track, I worked with Amillian who got the vibe of it straight away, encasing the vocal track with the beautiful synth strings, swirling electric sounds, those heavy Billie Eilish type of beats and echoing vocals. Hearing it felt like swimming in a pastel coloured dream”, she explains.
This symbolic release surely deserved a special treatment and Esmé ended up choosing this song to shoot her first music video ever that she self-directed, walking around Sydney with a cameraman. Without any MUA or stylist involved, her only plan was to invite the audience to follow her, continuing to build on this intimate bond she’s been creating with a lot of love and care since the beginning of her career. And it works like a charm: the stunning visuals are simply mesmerizing!
