Sylvan Esso Drop An Artistically Choreographed Video For ‘Numb’ And Announce 2021 Tour Dates

About half a year ago, Sylvan Esso unveiled their third album, Free Love, to the world. Now they’ve shared the exemplary “Numb” as a single, which is accompanied by an artistic video. The clip was co-directed by Meath and Jasmine Albuquerque and features striking choreography by the latter. The clip was also produced by Maavven, a studio that has also worked with icons like Rihanna, Pharrell, and Dua Lipa.

Meath says of the video, “I’ve always loved the pure dance videos of the TRL era and dreamed of making something that could live in that world. I’m so grateful to Jasmine and everyone at Maavven who worked with me to bring this to life, it was such a joy and I can’t wait for y’all to see it.”

The duo also announced a stretch of tour dates for later this year. In a September 2020 interview with Uproxx, Nick Sanborn said of getting back in venues, “Believe me, there is nothing I want more than to be in a room full of thousands of people playing our music on a gigantic sound system.” Meath added, “Dude, playing ‘Make it Easy’? We’re going to be able to get the audience to sing ‘It’s playing now’ with me? At which point I’m going to f*cking cry so hard.”
