Toronto’s art-pop band For Esmé just released their new video for “Modern Love”. The feminist, thought-provoking and empowering track is part of their critically-acclaimed latest album, Righteous Woman. You can watch the “Modern Love” video above and listen/purchase Righteous Woman here.
“Whenever I find myself down in the well of self-loathing or in desperate need of affirmations, I always return to Joan Didion’s 1961 essay “On Self Respect”;” shares frontwoman Mar Meredith. “It is a bible of sorts for me — a map that leads back to myself. I wanted to create a similar signpost, for myself and others, to look at ourselves in the mirror and know: I am complete, I am in charge of my own life, I am responsible for my own mistakes and my own victories.“
After shows at Toronto’s ROM and Montréal’s POP MTL, For Esmé will be on the road for a few more performances of the album! Here are the dates:
Friday, October 12 – Guelph, ON – Holy Smokes Fest – The Common
Sunday, October 14 – Windsor, ON – Phog Lounge

Hi there! My name is Marie, I am French born and raised, now living in Montreal. I work in Marketing by day, and I’m an avid concert-goer by night. I have always had a passion for photography, and realized that this mixes quite well with my love for live music (the absolute best way to experience music, if you ask me).
