Over the past year, the North Carolina electro pop duo Sylvan Esso has toured the country supporting TUNE-Yards, did the late-night television rounds and played festivals across the globe. Rolling Stone listed the group's single "Coffee" as one of the 50 Best Songs of 2014, and NPR named them one of the Top 10 Breakout Artists of 2014.
Wednesday, the blossoming group's headlining tour stopped by a sold-out Fitzgerald's, as Nick Sanborn shook the old wooden building down to the foundation and Amelia Meath mesmerized the crowd with her voice and freestyle dance moves.
The group was a late booking at last year's Free Press Summer Fest, but it was highly likely that you missed them; as the first act slotted to play on Sunday morning, approximately 150 people caught their performance. At the time it seemed that the chemistry between Meath and Sanborn was just budding, but it is apparent now that it was flourishing in the June heat.
