Electronic Pop duo Sylvan Esso makes music that describe as "pop music for feeling feelings" and boy are they right. It's not any easy task to combine a genre like Electronic Pop and still write songs that make people think and reflect. 

Something so interesting about their music is that it feels so natural and humanlike, something very rare to find in electronic music. It makes you wanna dance and move but the messages behind some of their songs are rather deep. I think this combination shows us that sometimes instead of sitting and sulking, it's better to just try and dance it off. Life happens, things come and go. 

Just like Sylvan Esso, these 9 artists will be sure to help you shake off anything life throws your way and make your playlist just a little better.
