XL Records' underling label, Merok, has scooped up another hip artist [supposedly] on the rise right now: Esser.

The young London-based singer is really quite appealing, though. Hokey, weirdly catchy synth lines (usually in the key of E!) underline Esser's heavily-accented singing voice to make for an awesome, sort of glitchy, lo-fi pop extravaganza. Depeche Mode turned on its head and brightened up, perhaps.

Check out the new single, "I Love You," below and pick the release up when it's out on April 21! Exciting.
