Praise for What Now:
“What Now is about surrendering your inhibitions in order to make room for forces bigger than yourself: sound that inspires movement, vulnerability that inspires reflection, love that inspires awe.”- NPR
“It’s a brief but dazzling tour through what sounds like a Super Mario rave held on the dark side of Rainbow Road… They’re tracks that prove, no matter what your band’s setup is, it doesn’t take much more than a voice as nimble and affecting as Amelia Meath’s to connect.” – Entertainment Weekly
“The sophomore album from the electronic pop duo offers a biting, withering take on pop music, full of crisp humor while still finding real moments of tenderness.” – Pitchfork
“What Now exudes more confidence and sonic color: Meath….now implements a more dynamic attack with some cabaret twang here, some R&B roar there. And Sanborn’s production had billowed into 3-D, weaving synthetic tones with organic flourishes” – Relix
“Their sophomore album continues the band’s journey into gorgeously layered noise, as evidenced on their latest single, “Die Young,” which lets Meath’s voice shine through brightly textured synths.” – Elle Magazine
“…their sound is distinctive and largely theirs alone: It is Sanborn’s electronic beats and burbles that manage to never feel cluttered or heavy, coupled with Meath’s lyrics, dripping with urgency and delivered in her flawless croon.” – Consequence of Sound
“…there was a probing poetry to the songs, real artistry and depth inside the shabby geniality, which also marked the 2014 debut album, Sylvan Esso. What Now, the second album, builds on that with some added sophistication…” – KPCC
