The collaborative duo, new to Partisan Records, premiered the new single this week and it has some bite.

Listen: 'Coffee' by Sylvan Esso

Sylvan Esso is the project of Amealia Meath (formerly of Mountain Man) and Nick Sanborn (Megafaun) that brings both of their talents together in such a fun and unique way. If there was ever such a thing as folky dance music, this would be it, and their newest single "Coffee" is a prime example of that. The song, which premiered at Stereogum, Meath's soft, vocals seem like they are best suited over mandolins or banjos, but here they combine smoothly and seamlessly with thick, bass-driven beats and random flits of percussion thrown in. It's a delightful combo and one that is only growing as the duo continues to work and put out more material. The Yin and Yang are working effectively, especially during the chorus when Meath playfully sings "Get up, get down." You wouldn't think that light voice belonged on a track like this, yet it totally does.

Here are Sylvan Esso's upcoming tour dates:

1/28 Washington DC - DC9
1/30 Brooklyn, NY - Rough Trade NYC
2/10 San Diego - Soda Bar
2/11 Los Angeles, CA - Satellite
2/13 San Francisco, CA - Bottom of the Hill
2/14 Portland, OR - Bunk Bar
2/15 Seattle, WA - Barboza
