Esben and the Witch

Monday, September 22, 2014 | by Caitie Tieman

Maybe it is just that I’m already primed for spooky October moods, but I’m finding the eerie effect of “Dig Your Fingers In” - a track off the latest Esben and the Witch album, A New Nature - to be incredibly appealing this week.  Driven by the haunting vocals of Rachel Davies (which end up giving me some Florence Welch-y, or even Grace Slick-esque, feelings by the end of the track), “Dig Your Fingers in” begins as a slightly sluggish turn for the British gothic-pop-rock trio, before erupting in a finale of shriller cries and aggressive guitar. I sorta can’t wait to listen to it while en route to a haunted house in the coming weeks….
