In a song centered around dancing, Sylvan Esso’s Amelia Randall Meath sweetly croons “Sentiment’s the same but the pair of feet change,” conceivably creating a beautiful metaphor for relationships and the woes of falling in love. Meath’s delicate vocal harmonies are enhanced by the slight shake of maracas, an occasional strike of a triangle and a simple beat laid down by her bandmate Nick Sanborn. Together, they’ve made “Coffee” an intelligible tune you can’t help but put on repeat, no matter the mood. The recently formed duo’s first LP is forthcoming from indie label Partisan Records, and look out for them performing live this summer on a world tour with tUnE-yArDs.
