Come Hear NC On Songs We Love: Sylvan Esso

Nov 15, 2019

We've teamed up with Come Hear NC on a podcast series that explores North Carolina music one song at a time. On this episode, we chat with Durham rapper Lord Fess  about Sylvan Esso's 'Die Young.' It's a song he says speaks to him personally, and is also one with incredible production.

"Where the usual bass drop is supposed to happen, he quiets it down. And it goes silent. There’s build up, build up, build up...the crescendo is the quiet, the whisper that Amelia is singing in that moment."
