Esben and the Witch (Brighton-based trio)

~ Group

Annotation

Esben & The Witch are a trio from Brighton. Rachel takes charge of caterwauling, Thomas the guitar and Daniel the electrics.

Sequenced beats and sounds flow beneath glacial guitars and sweeping synths. Meanwhile drums, cymbal and glockenspiel thread their way through the songs. The sound is something like nightmare-pop and it plays steadily through hidden speakers. The walls of the rooms it inhabits are covered in cartography, illuminated by dusty lamps and flickering chains of fairy lights. Globes sway slowly on their axis as the forest outside closes in on the confines of the room and the owls begin to screech as the walls fall away and the lights begin to fade...
