Sylvan Esso – Hey Mami


Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn of Megafaun have come together with a new tune to get all your wispy, dancy feelings moving.

The vocals are soft and delicate and the synths are sporadic and rough and somehow pull this song together to create an ultra-feminine and at the same time dirty sound which can only lead to an impromptu dance in your underwear.

Perfect tune for winter when you need to shake your cold bones and shake off this past year.

The lyrics are also wonderfully playful and dark. We need some more sounds like this one in 2014.

“She walking like a pale look at that ass
And I know she floats along as she goes
She owns the eyes as she flies right through the sound
Moving her body all around town
Hey, mami, hey, mami
I know what you want, I know what you want
I know what you want
Sooner or later the dudes or bodegas will hold their lips and on this ship
Going to terms on a shivery tip
But I, she don’t know the gravity she holds
As she cruise on the outgrows, all the kids standing tall.”
