Sylvan Esso add tour dates
Sylvan Esso

Sylvan Esso, the blossoming electropop duo out of Durham, North Carolina, have just added a few more dates to their massive 2015 tour. Amelia Meath (of Mountain Man) and producer Nick Sanborn (of Megafaun) released their eponymous record on May 12 of this year and have already seen their stock soar. The tandem has garnered a headlining gig at NYC’s Terminal 5 on January 23 and a spot in My Morning Jacket’s lavish Mexican extravaganza, One Big Holiday.

That event takes place from Jan. 31 - Feb. 4 at the luxurious Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya in Puerto Aventuras, Mexico. The four-day concert will include: three shows by Band of Horses (including one slightly-cloying-but-still-probably-awesome acoustic performance at sunset), the return of the New Orleans-styled Preservation Hall Jazz Band, a few iconic indie blues rockers—e.g. War on Drugs, Dr. Dog, and Dawes—and a lip sync contest judged by the Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne.

Sylvan Esso is definitely the new kid on the block in that crew, and their invitation is a testament to their talent. If you can’t make it to Mexico, never fear; they’ll probably be headed your way soon enough:
