Esben And The Witch - Hexagons
Hexagons by Brighton trio Esben And The Witch is the kind of music for those who hang around Renaissance fairs and participate in those re-enactments of medieval warfare: anachronistic and a bit OTT. Saying that this is a very pretty EP.
The album follows a cycle - The Fall, The Flight, The Surge, The Still, The Cast, The Thaw. The songs bleed into one another infused with Rachel Davies' beautiful trance-like voice, singing the lyrics as if she is casting a spell. Spooky, atmospheric, perfect for this time of year when the nights come quick and fast and the cold seeps into your bones like a ghost. Lovely stuff.
