This song, "Hey Mami", brings to mind girls skipping with a jump rope, or two, out on an asphalt playground. These girls are skipping over the snap of the line on the hot blacktop... slowly, soft and rubbery in the deep throb of Sylvan Esso's summer heat and yet spurred on by the soulful tinge in Amelia Meath's refreshing voice.
