Posts Tagged ‘There Are Many Ways To Say I Love You’

December 16, 2017

It’s been a fabulous year for North Carolina indie/dance pop duo Sylvan Esso. Not only did they release a phenomenal second album named What Now, which I’ve had on constant repeat, but Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn are now up for a Grammy for their acclaimed sophomore effort, too. Let’s just say it’s well deserved, and I’ll certainly be rooting for the duo, whom we’ve been touting on IHM since their debut singles way back in 2013. Though we’re used to their feisty, punchy energy on their genre bending tracks, today we get to listen to a very different sort of Sylvan Esso as they bless us with a cover of There Are Many Ways To Say I Love You, which you might recognize from PBS’ Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood if you watched it as a kid like I did. That’s right, we get to listen to Amelia coo softly and soothingly, accompanied by a lone guitar. In a way, this sweet lullaby reminds me of Karen O’s stripped down tracks from her sole solo album, Crush Songs.
