Watch This! Brilliant New Video by Esben and the Witch. Plus Upcoming Live Dates

We’ve already told you twice about the forthcoming Invada album featuring Thought Forms and Esben and the Witch (here and here) so we nearly didn’t run this – but then we saw how brilliant the video is and we know you’ll want to hear the track again so, well, check it out below – along with tour dates.

Esben have also announced plans for a string of shows from March to August with more to be added:

  • March 29 – Buffalo Bar, London
  • May 10 – Beyond the Redshift Festival, London
  • July 19 – Latitude Festival, Southwold (performing live score to La Antena)
  • August 8-10 – Supernormal Festival, Oxfordshire

The blurb we have about the video is as follows:

The clip, which focuses in on a particularly intense performance of ‘No Dog’, perfectly captures the tumultuous nature of the band’s live show: the volatile propulsion of their rhythm section, the unsettling dissonance of Thomas Fisher’s cacophonous guitar, and, at the eye of the storm, Rachel Davies’ lone, unadorned voice.

You can pre-order the split 12” here. It’ll be available from April 7.

Esben and the Witch’s website is here: They’re also on Facebook and Twitter.

Guy is a former full time member of the Louder Than War editorial team, who's since moved on to pastures new. Music's been a large part of his life since he first stumbled across Peel on his tranny as a fifteen year old. His whole approach to music was learnt from Peel in fact, which includes having as inclusive a taste in music as possible. Guy devotes most of his time looking for new music & although he's been known to say "the only good music is new music" he pretty much accepts this is bollocks. Favourite band The Minutemen.
