When you hear the story of how Nick Sanborn and Amelia Meath first met and then see the hugely successful band they've gone on to create, it’s easy to believe in fate. Sylvan Esso’s 2014 self-titled debut was met with critical acclaim, appearances on television and festival stages, and a massive following. By 2017, we were more than ready for their follow-up album.

Finally, Sylvan Esso has returned with another artfully crafted pop gem, titled What Now. We couldn’t wait to welcome the duo back to FUV Live, where they knocked us out with three new songs. Nick and Amelia also talked to me a bit about the fast success they achieved, and what went into making the new album.
