Taken from their new split 12 inch...
Esben and the Witch

A lot has happened to Esben and The Witch over the past 12 months.

Following their mutual parting of ways with Matador, the band opted to go it alone, launching a PledgeMusic campaign to fund their third album.

Before then, though, the Brighton trio decided to release a split 12 inch with touring partners and all round good eggs Thought Forms.

Esben and the Witch donate two tracks to the release, with the second of these going online a few short seconds ago.

'Butoh' comes draped in black, yet beyond the intensity of their songcraft Esben and the Witch have rarely sounded so immediate, so beautiful.

Listen to it below.

Esben and the Witch x Thought Forms split 12 inch will be released through Invada on April 7th. Catch Esben and the Witch at the following shows:
