Esben and The Witch – “Marching Song”

British trio Esben and The Witch recently signed to Matador – the label’s first UK signing in over six years.  That particular piece of information may not seem like a big deal, but the band’s sonic aesthetic is much more 4AD than what is typically associated with Matador (Pavement, Guided By Voices, Belle & Sebastian, etc.).  E&TW churn out dark, brooding, dramatic art-rock cut from the same cloth as fellow Brit miserablists Radiohead, Bat for Lashes and The xx.  The smoldering “Marching Song” builds patiently towards a fiery release, and is best appreciated via its disturbing video below.

The Marching Song 12″ is out 10/12 on Matador.  Their debut LP is due in early 2011.
