Esben and the Witch - comprising Rachel Davies, Thomas Fisher and Daniel Copeman - began in Brighton in 2008,
later decamped to Berlin, and is now split three ways across the UK, Germany and the US. Their winding geographical journey feels
representative of their path as a whole. The band have snaked through various scenes and sonic worlds across their 14 years
together, while always squirming away from an easy genre classification. Their first two albums, 2011's Violet Cries and 2013's Wash
the Sins Not Only The Face - both released on Matador Records - offered gothic, electronic-tinged dream pop and post-rock.
Beginning with the Steve Albini-produced A New Nature (2014, self-released on their own Nostromo Records), they came to explore
heavier post-punk and metal textures, which they intensified through 2016's Older Terrors and 2018's Nowhere (both via Marseille-
based metal label Season of Mist).
