Grammy-nominated Indie-pop duo, Sylvan Esso, returned in 2020 with their third full-length album, Free Love.
Elements of folk, indie-pop and electronica are continually front and center in the group's music, as highlighted in the single, "Ferris Wheel".
Allmusic's James Monger described the album as "...dance music for introverts", which is pretty spot-on. There's something charmingly awkward and genuine in the songs here.
The video for "Ferris Wheel" finds singer-songwriter Amelia Meath at a carnival, dancing in a variety of outfits in front of--you guessed it--a giant ferris wheel. It's a video full of fireworks and glitter and neon and the sweat of summer at the amusement park.
The lyrical content is fairly straightforward, but the coming-of-age nostalgia for simpler times resonates strongly in a year when everything has been anything but simple.
"When I'm slamming in my dancing shoes, Asphalt's hot, and my knees all bruised, It's the summer got a lot to prove, Can't wait to do it can you? (No!)"
