Durham’s Indie Pop Duo Sylvan Esso Join Charlotte-based Rapper Well$ for “Young Man”

Well$ ft. Sylvan Esso – Young Man (Audio)

After dropping the 98 Juvie Remix, Well$ returns with his new single Young Man, featuring Indie Pop duo Sylvan Esso. Read more about this new track here:

At first they may seem like strange bedfellows, but Charlotte rapper Well$ and Durham indie electropop duo Sylvan Esso are distinctively North Carolinian. Well$ represents NC Hip-Hop’s combination of the North’s intricate lyricism and the South’s brash boastfulness, while Sylvan Esso creates a blend of Amelia Meath‘s signature vocals with Nick Sanborn‘s electronic production. On “Young Man,” premiered Friday by The FADER, they prove to be two great tastes that taste great together; the aggressive braggadocio of Well$ during the song’s first half finds its perfect foil in the gentle concern voiced by singer Amelia Meath. Featuring wavy synths, hi-hat rolls, and pitched-up vocal samples courtesy of producer Jimmy Kelso, “Young Man” is a seamless blend of genres and a unique artifact of the burgeoning North Carolina music scene. “Young Man” is the latest single from Well$’ forthcoming mixtape The Way I’m Living Makes My Mom Nervous. The follow-up to 2014’s acclaimed MTSYD: The Revenge of the African Booty Scratcher, TWILMMMN comes out later this year.
