Sylvan Esso Debut Music Video for “Radio” | Catch Them Sept. 22 at The Ryman

SylvanEsso2017-620

As we mentioned last month, North Carolina based electro/indie pop duo turned international touring sensations Sylvan Esso are gearing up for the release of their highly-anticipated sophomore full-length, What Now, on April 28 via Loma Vista Recordings. A smattering of singles from the upcoming record have been released to date, including the undeniable earworm “Die Young,” but the first single, and certifiable smash, “Radio” first surfaced in late 2016 with considerable airplay across the country. The irony, of course, is the subject of the single jabbing at the current pop radio industry and the monopolization of Top 40 and Adult Contemporary format stations, and Sylvan Esso have just released an equally charged music video for the track, which you can check out below.

In support of the new release, Sylvan Esso are gearing up for a short European tour followed by a lengthy run of U.S. theater dates, including a Sept. 22 return to Nashville for a night at The Ryman Auditorium, and tickets are still available here!

ScaleModel2017-620

Nashville indie rockers Scale Model are back boasting an expanded lineup, an upcoming EP, and an ’80s new wave-inspired and synth overloaded single, “Other Voices” that needs to be on your new music radar now.  The band’s announcement includes news that they’ve added bassist Aaron Irons (The Non-Commissioned Officers, Jasmin Kaset) to their ranks, and the expanded sound is immediately noticable in the lush, dance-ready soundscapes that propel “Other Voices” through visions of Depeche Mode, while vocalist Megan Rox soars above as though channeling Annie Lennox.  The forthcoming EP, Afterglow, which officially drops April 21, was recorded, engineered, and mixed at Battle Tapes, and the cover art was designed by multi-talented Scale Model drummer Steve Cross.

Scale Model will celebrate the official EP release on May 12 with a show at Little Harpeth Brewing, along with fellow locals Sleeptalkre and Pet Envy.  The performance will also feature a photo booth and LED light show, and the $7 cover will get you a download card for a copy of the EP.  Head below to dig into “Other Voices”!
