On What Now, Sylvan Esso’s second album, their driest quip waits patiently in the wings. Radio, a scathing survey of pop music songwriting, flings such acid as Don’t you look good sucking American dick? over their most broadly palatable synth hook yet, the sort of sound Katy Perry strove for on her similarly dyspeptic Chained to the Rhythm. Crisp humor is a time-honored constant in folk storytelling-Pete Seeger and Bob Dylan knew their way around a bitchy barb. On What Now, much like on Sylvan Esso’s debut, folk exists only in the narrative sense; Meath studies everyday scenes through a loupe, pausing between the punchlines to relay stark, occasionally morbid scenes of intimacy. The album spawned three singles - "Radio", released on August 31, 2016; "Kick Jump Twist", released on November 18, 2016; and "Die Young", released on February 27, 2017. What Now.

Sylvan Esso – What Now. A sophomore album that swings between biting and sublime with only a bit of triteness. on April 14, 2017, 6:00am. Over 10 tracks on the duo’s sophomore album, What Now, Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn unravel familiar themes of physicality and immediacy, building on and complementing, but never managing to overtake, their debut’s aggressive minimalism. The tricky thing is that their sound is distinctive and largely theirs alone: It is Sanborn’s electronic beats and burbles that manage to never feel cluttered or heavy, coupled with Meath’s lyrics, dripping with urgency and delivered in her flawless croon.

On the flip side, the opening track of What Now has more in common with their predilection toward a more off-kilter take on pop music. It matches unearthly vocals with an earthly melody over retro electronics, and under a hiss of static. Sound" is a rather beautiful way to begin the record, if an unexpected one.
Sylvan Esso have officially myth-busted the concept of second album syndrome with their sophomore electro-pop record What Now. While the album title may be a tongue-in-cheek toast to the success of their 2014 self-titled debut, the new record shows the band maturing their signature sound.
