Sylvan Esso Share Laidback, Trippy New Single “Your Reality”


After dropping a surprise single last month, Sylvan Esso seem to be gearing up for a new album. The indie-pop duo just released another single in the form of “Your Reality,” which is a big step into what appears and sounds to be a new era.

“Your Reality” features a strong violin and strings motif over their signature bouncing synth melodies. Compared to their other releases, this track is a bit more low key than fans may expect. But by slowing things down, the duo draws attention to the lyrics. “Your Reality” seems to have a double meaning. Not only does it deal with the topic of entering a post-pandemic world, and discovering what the new normal is, but it also functions as Sylvan Esso figuring out what their new sound might be, after releasing three albums in what they are calling a completed trilogy. “Were there rules originally / Or are we learning / How to be / Surreal but free” lead singer Amelia Meath croons.

Sylvan Esso have a stacked summer of touring, so we’re hoping to hear more from them very soon. In the meantime, make sure to check out “Your Reality” using the link below. Enjoy!
