One of the more delightful aspects of Sylvan Esso’s songs is that they aren’t just fun to dance to but also to sing, as the lyrics, although often a touch cryptic, are interesting and well constructed. “Coffee,” the band’s standout single came fourth in the setlist, and had concertgoers more engrossed than at any other point in the night. However, a good portion of the songs proved to be enthusiastic sing-alongs. With a small catalogue of songs from this young band, fans know what they’re going to get at this point. What they’re getting is great, and Sylvan Esso find themselves at a pivotal point where a solid sophomore effort could propel them to great heights as an dance-centric yet intelligent group.

The infectious synth-pop duo that is Sylvan Esso hit Austin last Sunday (8/17) to play a seriously impressive show at Emo’s with similarly synthesizer-fixated artist Dana Buoy (of Akron/Family). The double-bill managed to exceed even the organizer’s expectations, selling out Emo’s after being moved from the much smaller Parish. Sylvan Esso’s leading lady Amelia Meath brought her trademark swagger (and dance moves) to the show, hypnotizing the crowd into a swaying mass of amateur back-up vocalists. Traditionally solo, Buoy traded some of his sequencers and loop pedals in for a full band leading to some more rough-around-the-edges versions of his tracks. Check out photos from both sets at BrooklynVegan.
