Esben and the Witch are a three piece indie rock band from Brighton, England. After a self-released EP 33 in 2009 and a limited 7-inch single „Lucia, at the Precipice“ in February 2010, the band signed with Matador Records. The band’s debut single for the label, „Marching Song“, was released on 11 October 2010, with their debut album Violet Cries was released on January 31 2011.


Since forming in Brighton in 2008, Esben and the Witch have had just a few releases behind them including „Lucia, at the Precipice“. They have had positive press support from NME, Pitchfork Media and The Guardian, plus experience of concerts alongside The xx, Wild Beasts, Foals, and The Big Pink.

In May 2010 the band contributed to the London edition of The Creators Project, warping one of 33’s tracks, „Corridors“, into an eighteen-minute soundscape to soundtrack artist Karl Sadler’s lit forest installation.

On October 19th 2010 it was revealed that the band were nominated for a Q Award as „next big thing“, the award eventually being won by Clare Maguire on October 25. The following day Matador Records announced the band’s debut album Violet Cries is to be released in January/February 2011.

On 6 December 2010, the BBC announced that the band had been nominated for the BBC’s Sound of 2011 poll.

    The Lexington gig blew me away -- they're fantastic live! I fucking lost it when they played The Fall from Glorieta Mountain, one of my absolute favourite songs. Here's hoping they'll play Bergen soon because I need more.

    Only heard the new album, but I love it. Tinges of like Swans/Isis style post-rock, but also PJ Harvey/My Brightest Diamond in the vocals. Really moody and yummy

    Wow! I haven't been able to get into them in the past, but A New Nature is really cool! Much more... I dunno... post-rock or even post-metalish in places. The vocals remind me of Chelsea Wolfe or even PJ Harvey to an extent.

    I LOVE EATW, but I just don't think this record is as good as the previous one. I have so much love for WTSNOTF, it got me through a lot, so maybe in due time this will too. They are an amazingly talented group of musicians, can't wait for their tour to come through town again.
