they use smiles to bury you.

A curious band, Esben and the Witch, played Thursday night at the Red Palace. The English trio took the stage with a sense of the fairytale and a gothic touch. It was almost like a dream sequence. Vocalist Rachel Davies let her long hair flow over her face as she sang strong smooth words and provided the sole percussion. The set was magical in a way, and though they aren't shoegaze in a traditional sense, their detached synchronization worked well for the music. They have been signed to Matador, and I would like to see them continue to garner positive attention.
