Music Monday ~ Sylvan Esso Hey Mami

Sylvan Esso are a US electro duo from California. Hey Mami is the lead track from their self titled album.
Amelia Meath takes control of the vocals while the other half is made up by Nick Sandborn who produces their tracks.
When I first heard Hey Mami I thought it was going to be a cute folksy sounding track that I wouldn't quite get. I couldn't have been more wrong. What starts out a little folksy soon turns into something more akin to dub-step. The mash-up of genre's takes you on a little journey, I'm a sucker for a killer base line so was pretty happy to be taken on a ride. 
After about 30 seconds I was hooked, the clear vocals and great story telling are an unbeatable formula. After listening to the lyrics a few times over I fell head over heels in love with the sentiment. The song is essentially about a woman being cat called by a group of guys. I'm sure lots of girls can relate to it! 
It's clear I'm a fan but what about you, have a listen and let me know what you think.
