ALBUM REVIEW: ESBEN AND THE WITCH
A NEW NATURE
RELEASED: 1ST SEPTEMBER 2014
Rejoice! Esben and The Witch are releasing their next album ‘A New Nature’ on the 1st of September. Here are a few tips to prepare you for the day.
1. Book a few hours for listening! This isn’t some three singles and filler scam of an album, every track blends effortlessly into one another and you won’t want to skip a single moment of the Brighton trio’s gloriously haunting masterpiece, infact you’ll want to listen at least twice.
2. Get out your old PJ Harvey records in anticipation! A comparrison that gets thrown about like a…football at a soccer match? Trust us one this one, there’s a definite Harvey influence visible within the vocals – delicate, etheral…but they never reach a stage where you could call plagiarism it’s all still uniquely wonderful.
3. Get an atmosphere sorted! Atmospheric is a greatly overused buzz-word in music journalism but this shizz is hella atmospheric aiiiight! So return the favour and don’t just give a half hearted listen on the tube, light some candles, put on a cloak or something, do whatever you need to do to appreciate the piece of purified postrock you are about to receive.
4.Just fork out the cash for the CD and make your life better.
