The instrumentation on “Your Reality” is sparse, with Amelia Meath singing the vocals almost like a poem as she asks, “Were there rules originally, or are we learning how to be?”
In a press release, Meath’s bandmate Nick Sanborn describes the song as a “reference point for how weird we can take it. How bare and strange something can be.” The pair adds that the single marks a new chapter for Sylvan Esso, concluding a trilogy of their first three LPs.
Free Love, a nominee for Best Dance/Electronic Music Album at the 2022 Grammy Awards, was the group’s most recent album, marking Sylvan Esso’s third full-length. The album was a follow-up to 2017’s What Now, also a Grammy nominee.
This summer, the band will hit the road on a tour supporting Odesza and appear at a number of festivals — including Massachusetts’ Solid Sound Festival, Michigan’s Electric Forest, and Las Vegas’ Life Is Beautiful.
