Genre: Electro-folk rock
Favorite tracks: “Play It Right,” “Dreamy Bruises” and “Coffee”
Similar sounds: Dirty Projectors, Purity Ring, Kimbra, St. Vincent
Inspired look: Sylvan Esso’s music video for “Coffee” is pouring with stellar vintage-inspired goodies. While not all of the looks are 100% wearable, some peter pan collars and circle skirts certainly made the cut.
