Live Gig Video: Sylvan Esso premiere live performance of ‘Die Young’ from Shakori Hills Festival

By on Wednesday, 15th November 2017 at 4:00 pm

Back at the end of September, electro-folk duo Sylvan Esso played a special warm-up show ahead of the Shakori Hills Grassroots Music and Dance Festival in their home state of North Carolina. The bill for that evening’s show also included fellow indie rock duo Wye Oak and eclectic art-rock solo act tUnE-yArDs, but Sylvan Esso were clearly the hometown crowd favourites, taking top billing with tracks from their latest LP ‘What Now’.

The following video performance features the duo’s latest hit single ‘Die Young’, which has found a comfortable home on SiriusXM Alt-Nation since its release earlier this year. This live version finds singer Amelia Meath in a giddy mood, giggling as she thanks the large crowd and getting a little more down and dirty than usual with her vocals, while producer Nick Sanborn grooves along to his own electronic beats. The pair are currently on tour in the UK; you’ll find details of those live dates here and a full listing of Sylvan Esso’s upcoming worldwide shows on their official Facebook.
