Sylvan Esso appears on the latest episode of Live On KEXP At Home, a video series from the Seattle public radio station. The duo — which consists of vocalist Amelia Meath and multi-instrumentalist/producer Nick Sanborn — spoke with host DJ Morgan and performed four originals and a cover.

The session, which found Nick and Amelia performing and chatting from their home in North Carolina, was recorded on September 24. Sylvan Esso’s latest studio album, Free Love, came out the next day. Meath and Sanborn played Free Love tracks “Ferris Wheel” and “Rooftop Dancing” as part of the session.

Sylvan Esso’s performance of “Ferris Wheel” was followed by the pair’s take on “Die Young” from 2017’s What Now. The duo then presented “Rooftop Dancing” before coming back to What Now for “Radio.” Amelia Meath & Nick Sanborn’s final performance of the hour-long session was a cover of Stina Nordenstam’s “Winter Killing.”
