SYLVAN ESSO! Announce WOODES As Support In Sydney & Melbourne!

Handsome Tours today announce the support act for the upcoming Sylvan Esso headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne. The American duo, whose second album ‘What Now’ was recently nominated for ‘Best Electronic/Dance Album’ at the 2018 Grammys, connected with Melbourne based producer, singer and songwriter Woodes after she reached out to them via an open letter posted on Twitter.
 
Clearly inspired by the US synth-pop duo’s output, Woodes stated “I started producing music in 2013, in 2014 ‘Coffee’ and ‘Hey Mami’ were sone of the songs that made me real excited to delve into creating my own beats and sample libraries”. Read the full letter here
 
Woodes is the moniker for the 24-year-old Elle Graham, whose quick ascension into the limelight has caused many a head to turn; in her short career Woodes has already garnered attention from triple j, Rolling Stone, Pilerats and Indie Shuffle, with her debut ‘Self-titled’ EP clocking up millions of streams on Spotify.
 
Sylvan Esso will perform at headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne this January/February whilst in Australia, performing nationally at Laneway Festival.
 
‘What Now’ is the sound of a band truly fulfilling the potential and promise of their debut album. Everything has evolved – the production is bolder, the vocals are more intense, the melodies are brighter, and the songs are that much more glorious. Made in 2016, it’s an album both political and personal, blurring the line between the two and featuring the finest songs the band has ever written; both ‘Die Young’ and ‘The Glow' having found their way onto the playlists of triple j this year.  
 
With their innovative and genre-bending synth-pop, Sylvan Esso’s electric live shows are not to be missed this summer.
