Track Of The Day: For Esmé – ‘For Others’

Dazzling synths and strong feminist beliefs combine on ‘For Others’, the latest single from Toronto-based For Esmé. The track negotiates the struggle between the “impossible things” women must contemplate whilst struggling to balance a career, a family, a romantic life, and an honest expression of self-identity.

The project is fronted by multi-talented artist Martha Meredith, and the new single is taken from For Esmé’s upcoming LP, Righteous Woman, set to be released on 25th May this year. The album was co-created with collaborator Dave Thiel and producer James Bunton (Donovan Woods, Too Attached), and mastered by Mandy Parnell (Bjork, Aphex Twin, Dirty Projectors).

Described as “a confrontation with self and the systems that shape us”, Righteous Woman was influenced by Meredith’s ongoing work with Toronto Women in Music, a network of female identifying musicians working to support one another and claim space in a male-dominated industry. With such vital foresight and passion, we’re sure For Esmé’s music is going to inspire other women to create their own sounds and opinions in music and beyond.
