Fronted by Martha Meredith, For Esmé is an unabashedly feminist exploration of self-love and the courage of conviction in uncertain times.
A rare mix of confession and confection, the songs of For Esmé push the limits of pop to embrace infinite beauty while provoking an honest exchange of identity and inner voice. With electric anthems steeped in bright melody and driven by deeper meaning, For Esmé makes music for this moment, glittering ruminations unapologetic in their demand to be heard.
Taking inspiration from sources ranging from Fiona Apple to Robyn and Röyksopp and referencing projects like No Doubt's Return of Saturn and Joan Didion's seminal essay "On Self Respect", For Esmé’s new album, 'Righteous Woman,' (May 25th) traverses an emotional spectrum grounded in electronic art pop. With a refrain built for the current cultural moment, the first single, "Doubtmouth," unwinds its message like a spool of thread, moving through the doubt that chokes us and the labels that shrink us to find a voice and body that won't be quieted. Each song is a poetic investigation of a larger message; as a whole Righteous Woman is a biting meditation, sensitively suspended on the razor's edge between vulnerability and defiance.
