Event Information
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, fulfilment 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 realisation 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.
