New Treat #13: Esben and the Witch

I haven’t done a New Treat for quite a while, not since Ellie Goulding I don’t think, but this band makes up for that. They are quite special. The three-piece from Brighton are fronted by the amazing vocals of Rachael Davies and backed by an XX sound. It is like if Florence joined the XX. It’s also got a Bat For Lashes feel to it. The music is dark, but accessible. If you go here you can download a 5-track album for free! How good is that?! They also have a UK tour planned for next month, dates include London, Brighton, Leeds, Manchester, Sheffield, Oxford and Lancaster. Full detail are at their myspace here. This is quite a dark video of them.

If you don’t fancy downloading the free album, here is an mp3 of Marching song…
