Esben and the Witch

Noch einmal möchte ich auf diese großartige Band aus Brighton verweisen. Das gestrige Konzert war sehr intensiv, aufregend und brutal laut ( Bass !!!)

Die sperrige, düstere Musik live umzusetzen, ist dem Trio mehr als gelungen. Ich möchte hier gar nicht weiter auf das Konzert eingehen, sondern Euch auffordern, selbst zu den Konzerten zu gehen !
Wer Cure, Siouxsie, Cocteau Twins, P. J Harvey, The XX und Curve mag, der wird  Esben and the Witch lieben. Rachels Stimme ist sehr ungewöhnlich - erinnert an Chan Marshall ( Catpower ), dann an Siouxsie, irgendwie an die junge Nena und dann wieder an P.J Harvey. Aufregend und faszinierend.

Again I want to introduce this exciting Band from Brighton to you. I've been to their concert yesterday and it was an amazing, exciting and louuuud experience. Their dark and complicated tracks were live unbelievable and flowing. Go and watch them live !!! If you like music s.a. Cure, Curve, Siouxsie, P.J. Harvey etc. and voices like Chan Marshalls or Florences ( and the machine), you'll love it. Fascinating, outstanding !!!


In a wilderness of foggy thoughts
battling with your minds retorts
and walking on empty plains
where deserts so calm
even drowning rains

Soldier on
to this marching song
head held high
with eyes fixed strong

Drum beat died
cymbal crash down
the mud it is thick
with desires to drown
your feet in earth

Your boots are sinking
sink with the memories
of long lost thinking

And armies of many
are fighting their fight
lost in the blackness
they're losing their sights

Your veins are my trenches
my gun is my own
the whispers fall heavy
with delicate moans

Arms and legs
teeth and nail
our fragile companions
are destined to fail

For this battalion
has been run through
therefore captains and comrades
I bid you all adieu
