Sylvan Esso share surprise new single ‘Sunburn’

Sylvan Esso have surprise released a new single called “Sunburn.”

The cathartic pop anthem serves as Sylvan Esso’s first release since their 2020 album, Free Love. It’s a pulsing, synth-driven tune with Sylvan Esso’s signature gritty, warping vocal lines. The track is all about feeling delight to the point of discomfort, or the pain that comes from too much of something good. Band members Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn explain:

“‘Sunburn’ is:

eating candy til you’re sick
riding your bike too fast down a hill
when you’re five years old and don’t want to get out of the water, and by the end you’re shivering
and all your fingers are pruney and your lips are turned purple
an undertow that sneaks up unsuspectingly
the painful pulsing pink of swollen eyelids leftover after a day lying in the sun
plunging forward without time for second-guessing

produced by Sylvan Esso
for you.”
