Our favorite electro-pop duo, Sylvan Esso, has a new single … and a video to go with it. As usual, “Rooftop Dancing” features Amelia Meath’s limpid vocals combined with Nick Sanborn’s electronic wizardry. Shot in our other favorite city, “Rooftop Dancing” radiates positivity … something we could all use right now.
Sylvan Esso has this to say about their latest:
“Rooftop Dancing” is about the excitement of being part of a collective humming whole — a city that contains multitudes — with your small story shining softly amidst it. Cheryl Dunn was a natural first choice to make the video since she has been so brilliantly capturing the spirit of NYC for years. We are so grateful to her for collaborating with us and giving us a beautiful slice of what the city feels like today.
We hope you like it. Thank you for listening.
Our favorite excerpt from Amelia’s lyrics:
Sunlight beaming out over the bridge
We’re all running, outrunning death
Summertime breaking but we’re chasing it
Forever rooftop dancing
This song comes from the new album Free Love, which is due out September 25th. And if you do a bit of online detective work, you might be able to find another single and video from that same album: “Ferris Wheel.”
Or we can make it easy for you.
