Toronto electronic pop trio For Esmé are one of Canada’s best kept secrets. That should change soon.
The group, which we’ve already featured here and on VanyaRadio for their collaboration with Wolf Saga and breakout synth-pop track “Just Yet,” respectively, are set to perform at Pop Montreal this weekend before crossing the border for CMJ in New York City next month.
The soundtrack to this inevitable success is For Esmé’s new single “Make A Sound”, a chill, vibe-casual alt-pop jam that’s the latest off upcoming LP Sugar, which drops October 16. And the song resonates, lyrically, with the need to constantly impress the modern world around us.
“The song is about the endless need in this industry, in this generation, to show everyone how great your life is and how exhausting that is,” says singer Martha Meredith. “I catch myself feeling regret for not thinking to capture a special moment on camera, then catch myself, ‘Why isn’t the moment itself enough?’…”
Get lost in the moments of “Make A Sound” below, and circle the dates of For Esmé’s upcoming gigs.
