Photos: Sylvan Esso - Asheville, N.C.

Durham’s dynamite duo Sylvan Esso kicked off a world tour last week in Asheville with not one but two sold out shows at The Mothlight. The synthy twosome, by name Amelia Randall Meath and Nicholas Sanborn, proved a band doesn’t need to push in order to pull a crowd into their realm; if anything it’s better to subtly lure them in. And when the lure consists of such sultry hypnotic concoctions as “Coffee”, well, the crowd will be in for it. How else could SE get an entire audience to sing “My baby does the hanky panky”?

Check out Jeffrey Delannoy’s photos from the band’s time in Asheville, N.C. in the gallery above.
