Esben and the Witch clearly has a lot of talent, but we felt like this album wasn't focused and authentic enough to really have the affect that the band ha. .

Reading all the 'metacritics' crap about how this album is "neither this nor that" actually makes it the ideal middle you want to explore. Because it's not hysterically overpraised hype but far more personal affair. Esben & the Witch are not in it for the next big thing (or at least they don't sound that ambitious, despite beautifully constructed details put into music)

Immersing your mind into the depths of Violet Cries, the debut album from Esben and The Witch is to experience transportation to an alternate reality. Whether you happen to be listening at home, in the car on a frozen morning or caught between twin headphones on a bustling commute, you are suddenly relocated to a bleak and blasted heath; smoke and mist rushing by your ears as the sun disappears behind the line of the horizon and the spirits begin to stir.

Esben and the WitchMatador. There is a symmetry in this Brighton trio’s debut coming out at the same time as the Gothic drama Black Swan. Like Darren Aronofsky’s film about a ballerina being driven insane by her own perfectionism, Violet Cries has an elegance, violent tension and dark humour that leave you wanting to know more.

Album: Esben & the Witch, Violet Cries (Matador). Sunday 30 January 2011 01:00. Judging by the titles on their debut album – "Argyria", "Chorea" and "Eumenides" – Brighton trio Esben and the Witch are a band who paid attention in Classics. Throughout the exquisitely mournful Violet Cries, Rachel Davies issues Cassandra-like predictions of woe and mayhem, while Thomas Fisher's filigree guitars shimmer like sunset on a lake. It's small-g "gothic", reminiscent of Dead Can Dance: Matador won't thank me for saying it's a record whose spiritual home is 4AD.
