Esben and The Witch – “Warpath”

Not too long ago, I did a post on “Marching Song” – the first single from Esben and The Witch’s debut LP, Violet Cries, which is due in early February on Matador.  I mentioned that the British trio excelled at “dark, brooding, dramatic art-rock cut from the same cloth as fellow Brit miserablists Radiohead, Bat for Lashes and The xx.”  Following “Marching Song” is the aptly titled “Warpath”, another ominous, martial track that leads me to believe Violet Cries may bear, at the very least, the passing influence of Tolkien.  Or maybe I just watched Two Towers and can’t help feeling that these tunes were tailor-made for the tales of Middle Earth.

Violet Cries is out 2/9 via Matador.
