Sylvan Esso have returned with their new single “Your Reality”. The track features an arrangement from Gabriel Kahane, and delicately frenetic drums by TJ Maiani, the layered single serves as the opening to a chapter, a reference point “for how weird we can take it,” says Nick Sanborn. “How bare and strange something can be.”

Over a sparse, skittering pattern of percussive synth, Amelia Meath remembers how to live. She swims in the air and walks in the sky, while asking a question that has preoccupied the post-pandemic world: “Were there rules originally, or are we learning how to be?” From the depths of the mix an echoing bed of backing vocals answers, “No rules.”

“Your Reality” follows the duo’s recent single “Sunburn,” After debuting the track for tens of thousands of fans across three nights at the Historic Durham Athletic Park, as well as an Austin City Limits taping, spring tour and a stop at Wilco‘s Solid Sound Festival last month, Sylvan Esso will bring both of the new songs to a headlining set at Electric Forest Festival this weekend.
