Esben and the Witch #7 - Despair

Facebook /

Esben & The Witch have released the latest track to be taken from their soon to be released second LP Wash The Sins Not Only The Face (due 21st Jan via Matador), the perfectly titled "Despair", short and sharp it's sound-tracked by a nightmarish whirlpool of swirling guitars and penetrating drum beats, Esben & The Witch have never been one to hide behinds screens and "Despair" has its heart on its sleeve, dark, stirring, brilliant.

I can't wait to hear this one live, just don't expect me to be doing the video's choreographed dance moves - a chance to do just that will happen soon when Esben & The Witch play an in-store at Rough Trade East on January 22nd with a UK/Euro tour following in February - dates.
