Sylvan Esso at Hidden Door, EdinburghFestival
26 May 18:00 - 23:59
Hidden Door Festival 2018 welcomes the fabulously catchy Grammy-nominees Sylvan Esso to the glorious old Leith Theatre, "Scotland's best new live music venue".
"Luscious builds of tinkering synths, teaming with electricity, moments of euphoria... this deserves your attention" Clash Magazine
"Crafted with a newfound appreciation for sound, but with unexpected, childlike curiosity. Sylvan Esso know they have a good thing going..." Spin
"Brilliant live - Sylvan Esso are simply too good to ignore." The Standard
Sylvan Esso began as a chance meeting, followed by a couple of risky cross-country relocations that coalesced into ten songs. It became very clear early on that these songs were the product of sheer alchemy; Amelia’s effortlessly acrobatic melodic reflections complimented Nick’s dynamic compositions in ways that were as unlikely as they were undeniable. When it started it was whisper quiet, a slight frame, something almost domestic but gleaming with excitement. Then it made contact with the air.
With support from Glasgow synth-pop duo Happy Meals and E M I L I E trio infusing airy pads, electronic drum beats and catchy yet ethereal vocal melodies.
