The duo behind Sylvan Esso has always found a way to intermingle pop tones within their orchestrated sounds. Always delivering on that premise, they’ve just announced their third full length Free Love is to be released in September. To mark the occasion they’ve revealed a catchy new single “Ferris Wheel” accompanied by a very colorful video as well.
While the video pops with colors and variants that dazzle the eyes, it’s the song that takes center stage. The minimalist build of instrumentation versus vocals creates a catchy and memorable sound. There’s an upbeat pacing to the track that holds the beat and the vocals together in a masterful way. The duo isn’t doing any heavy lifting here, just revealing a more pop based sound that never leaves your head as soon as you hear it. Bookends of the song hold eighties pop synths without doing so in a trite way, though the vocals are what really capture your attention.
The video for “Ferris Wheel” is up for viewing above or through YouTube. The song is ready to stream on all streaming sites. Free Love can be preordered on varying formats from Loma Vista Recordings ahead of its September 25 drop date.
