[WATCH] For Esmè – “Make a Sound”

Toronto’s For Esmè have been a favorite of mine ever since I was introduced to their music this past summer. “Make a Sound” – a social commentary on social media and how the documentation of our lives have become so nonchalant – is one of those tracks that keeps replaying in my head every time I go to post something on Facebook, allowing me to think twice about sharing certain things that probably don’t mean as much as I think they will.

Today the band shares the video for “Make a Sound” which features an old school approach to things before the internet took over our lives and where effort made everything a tad bit sweeter.

Picture this—it’s 1979 and For Esmé is performing their new single ‘Make A Sound’ on late night television. Anyone who grew up recording TV shows on their VCRs will understand.

Remember staying up to catch something special airing on late night television? Maybe something you weren’t supposed to be seeing? Remember scrounging around for a VHS tape you could record it onto? So often I accidentally recorded over something else, or there were glitches in the tape. We’re taking you on a trip back to the days before YouTube, where your only chance to hold onto an iconic TV moment was to record it yourself.”
Blondie eat your heart out!
