After announcing that their new album ‘Free Love’ will be arriving on 25th September with new track ‘Ferris Wheel’, Sylvan Esso are giving us the latest taste of what to expect sharing new track ‘Rooftop Dancing’.
“’Rooftop Dancing’ is about the excitement of being part of a collective humming whole - a city that contains multitudes - with your small story shining softly amidst it,” the duo say. “Cheryl Dunn was a natural first choice to make the video since she has been so brilliantly capturing the spirit of NYC for years. We are so grateful to her for collaborating with us and giving us a beautiful slice of what the city feels like today.”
Director Cheryl Dunn adds, “To me this song reflects the social climate of NY right now, with its historical resilience to re-invent - to create new things from the discarded, to take back the streets, to not dwell on what you can’t do but to get excited about what you can do… like riding bikes en masse, making guerrilla art shows by the river, making more art and music - and yes - dancing on the roof tops!”
