Sylvan Esso Share New Single “PARAD(w/m)E” + Performed Song on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Hot off the back of their nomination for Best Dance/Electronic album at the GRAMMY®s, Sylvan Esso reveal their brand new single “PARAD(w/m)E.”  Click HERE to listen to it. The band performed the single for the first time on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, which included backup vocals from Amber Coffman and Wye Oak’s Jenn Wasner; click HERE to watch it. “PARAD(w/m)E” follows their critically acclaimed second album What Now which was released on Loma Vista Records last year.

With a pulsating synth arrangement juxtaposed with Amelia’s cut-glass vocals, “PARAD(w/m)E” is an intoxicating blend of musical influences and astute lyricism, showcasing Sylvan Esso at the top of their game. With a GRAMMY nomination now under their belts, the band continue to evolve sonically and lyrically, and position themselves at the helm of pioneering pop.

The band are continuing to add dates to their 2018 tour, which includes their largest headlining shows to date – in July at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and Berkeley, Red Rock Amphitheater and more. All tour dates below.

Sylvan Esso’s second album, What Now, is the sound of a band truly fulfilling the potential and promise of their debut. Everything has evolved – the production is bolder, the vocals are more intense, the melodies are more irresistible, and the songs shine that much brighter. However, it is also a record that was made in 2016 – which means it is inherently grappling with the chaos of a country coming undone, the voices of two people nestled in studios around the country who were bemused by what they looked out and saw. It’s an album that is both political and personal, and blurs the line between the two – What Now describes the inevitable low that comes after every high, fulfillment tempered by the knowledge that there is no clearly defined conclusion. It’s a record about falling in love and learning that it won’t save you; about the over sharing of information and the fine line between self-awareness and narcissism; about meeting one’s own personal successes but feeling the fizzling embers of the afterglow rather than the roar of achievement; about the crushing realization that no progress can ever feel permanent. It is an album that finds its strength in its own duality. But at its core, What Now is an album of the finest songs this band has ever written- produced masterfully, sang fearlessly- to articulate our collective undercurrents of anxiety and joy.

Listen to “PARAD(w/m)E” on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon Music and Google Play.
