    The electro-pop duo from Durham, NC have produced a visual which perfectly demonstrates how we should dance to their music. We presume that, "Kick Jump Twist" will be featured on their upcoming sophomore album. This track has a rougher edge than the dreamy sound on their debut. Nick Sanborn, who controls the electronic portion of their sound, juxtaposes a dirty bass against a little 8 bit blip on this track, giving us a new sound from the duo. The vocalist and songwriter Amelia Meath then delivers another unshakeable melody and hook, making us sure their highly anticipated sophomore effort will be as great as their debut.

    The video is extremely compelling, it reminds me of the video for "Chandelier" by Sia, where dance protege Maddie Ziegler dances around a dingy house. This theme of having a single dancer on camera performing frantic dance translates well to "Kick Jump Twist." It is impossible to listen to Sylvan Esso and not dance, this video gives us a few more moves we can bust out on the dance floor. "Kick Jump Twist" and their other single "Radio" are available on a 12" vinyl which can be purchased on their website.
