Sylvan Esso’s Nick Sanborn Announces Solo EP, Show at DC9


Within a few short months, Nick Sanborn and Amelia Meath of Sylvan Esso went from headlining the small confines of DC9 to selling out the 1,200 capacity Howard Theatre in 2014. Following their rapid rise and success, Sanborn has unveiled his new solo project called Made of Oak, and today he’s released a teaser of his new EP, Penumbra. The clip is only 48 seconds long, but it slowly unleashes a wave of dreamy synths that have us intrigued about the rest of the record. After Penumbra officially comes out on Friday, November 6 via Partisan Records, you’ll have the chance to see Sanborn live at DC9 on Wednesday, November 18. Here’s the teaser, official tracklist and full tour dates:

01 “Penumbra”
