With Sylvan Esso‘s new album Free Love coming before the end of this month, the duo have definitely shown new sides through the pre-release singles. While they’ve gone from pop to chillwave, their latest single offers plenty of well crafted notes. With “Frequency” you get the arrangements that the band is highly focused on while the video directed by Moses Sumney offers another side to the group’s overall look.
The track definitely derives the duo’s electronic sound into a beautifully fragmented touch. The vocals sway in like warm air while synths and beats play underneath with graceful and chopped elegance. The dual vocals make for a nice touch before the song steers into a more pop nuance and never leaves your head. The video offers wondrous dance movements that are not only synced via choreography, but modern and interpretive at the same time.
The video is ready to watch above or on YouTube. The song can be heard on all streaming sites. Free Love can be preordered before its September 25 release in various formats and bundles from Loma Vista Recordings.
