Electronic duo Sylvan Esso really showed a more diverse side this year when they released their full length Free Love. Keeping what got them to where they are while expanding what they do, the two piece definitely changed things with the album. Keeping busy during the pandemic, their recent reveal of “Frequency (Live From The Satellite)” opens the depth of the track more while giving you the song in a live setting.
While the album version is represented here, the vocals feel more intimate in the live version. The electronics have a different tone without changing the overall sound. There’s a bit more bop here as there’s plenty of open space that doesn’t steer your attention from the magnificent vocals. The song just feels more organic here as you’re continuously fed a calming sound as things play out. Almost like a peaceful slow groove.
The video is ready to watch above or on YouTube. Free Love can be purchased in various formats and bundles from Loma Vista Recordings.
