Directed by Supercollider, the video follows Ameilia Meath and Nick Sanborn having a great time at a carnival, complete with all the lights, games and of course, a ride on the Ferris wheel.
“This first single, Ferris Wheel, is about discovering your power and awkwardly figuring out how to wield it,” Meath said in a statement. It’s for the summer, it’s for you, we hope you like it.”
Prior to “Ferris Wheel,” Sylvan Esso released a visual for “What If,” the LP opener, last week.
Free Love is the studio follow-up to 2017’s What Now, and recently released live record, WITH, which dropped back in April.
“It’s a record about being increasingly terrified of the world around you and looking inward to remember all the times when loving other people seemed so easy, so that you can find your way back to that place,” Meath said.
