Fronted by Mar Meredith, For Esmé is an unabashedly feminist exploration of self-love and the courage of conviction in uncertain times.
Refracting light through dark places, For Esmé's 'Righteous Woman' invokes the urgent and personal to reflect on and reposition the multitudes of womanhood, to push back against the patriarchy, to offer the possibility of living on one's own terms. For Esmé is a 5 piece electronic pop band bringing a dynamic and dance worthy set to the stage. Huge sound, intimate moments, 5 part harmonies, and psychedelic visuals, with Mar Meredith’s powerful vocals, infectious dancing and outspoken theatrical performance at the forefront. For Esmé has played Wayhome, SXSW, NXNE, CMJ, POP MTL, CMW, Festival Du Voyageur, and many more. Their new record Righteous Woman has had 2 songs in the top 5 CBC Radio 3 Top 30, ‘Song of the Week’ on Here and Now, a premiere with Exclaim! and lots more. This fall they will be playing Pop Montreal, Holy Smoke Festival and more to be announced.
