Sylvan Esso's new album What Now, out April 28, could hardly be better titled for this moment we find ourselves in, as we discuss with the band's Amelia Meath on this episode of Soul Sisters.
"The album has definitely changed for me post-election," she says -- though just how political the album is has more to do with who is performing it than the music itself.
"Being a human that speaks their mind and is creative is slowly becoming more and more political in the current climate that we're in," Meath explains. Or, to put it in terms we'd love to one day see on a t-shirt: "Being a woman who runs her s--t is a political statement."
