Listen to "Radio," a Sharp New Song from Sylvan Esso


Durham's Sylvan Esso has been laying low for much of the year after spending most of 2014 and 2015 tearing up the road in support of its self-titled debut LP. But overnight, the duo released "Radio," a bouncy new tune that jabs at the exhausting media machinations that boost and bully so many musicians. 

The song isn't quite a departure from the Sylvan Esso's earlier cool electropop, but it seethes with a fresh urgency—and at times, even aggression—that makes for a sharp and interesting edge.

You can grab "Radio" on a twelve-inch single that's out out on November 18 and available for preorder here. Sylvan Esso's next local gig is at the Hopscotch Music Festival, headlining City Plaza Saturday night with Vince Staples and Tuskha. Maybe they'll slip in more new stuff there, too?
