Named after a popular Danish fairy tale, ESBEN AND THE WITCH (Rachel Davies (vocals, bass), Thomas Fisher (guitar), and Daniel Copeman (drums, electronics)) were formed in Brighton, UK in 2008. Following the release of three critically acclaimed full-lengths released on Matador Records and the band’s own imprint, Nostromo Records, ESBEN AND THE WITCH have refined a truly inimitable approach to dark rock. The band’s music, which has been heralded as “Radiohead without the mithering, goth stripped of unnecessary melodrama” (NME), and “seductive, terrifying stuff. It casts a spell.” (Stereogum) has propelled them to worldwide acclaim, with the band touring the world over and establishing themselves as an outstanding live force.
