With their highly-anticipated new album set to land later next month, Sylvan Esso have now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Rooftop Dancing' comes accompanied by a stunning new video, directed by Cheryl Dunn, and follows on from the previously shared lead track 'Ferris Wheel' in previewing in their new LP 'Free Love', which arrives on the 25th September.
Speaking about the new offering, the band said, “’Rooftop Dancing’ is about the excitement of being part of a collective humming whole - a city that contains multitudes - with your small story shining softly amidst it. Cheryl Dunn was a natural first choice to make the video since she has been so brilliantly capturing the spirit of NYC for years. We are so grateful to her for collaborating with us and giving us a beautiful slice of what the city feels like today.”
While director Dunn added, “To me this song reflects the social climate of NY right now, with its historical resilience to re-invent - to create new things from the discarded, to take back the streets, to not dwell on what you can’t do but to get excited about what you can do… like riding bikes en masse, making guerrilla art shows by the river, making more art and music - and yes - dancing on the roof tops!”
