DOWNLOAD: Esben & the Witch - Deathwaltz (MP3)
Esben and the Witch's second album, Wash The Sins Not Only The Face, is out January 21 via Matador. The band's dark, ethereal music has been accompanied by some striking music videos. A month or so ago, the band debuted the striking "Deathwaltz" which was shot using the Phantom HD Gold camera which shoots at 1000 frames a second (used memorably in Inception). There's an MP3 of that song above. Now Esben and the Witch have released a clip for "Despair" which features choreography and dancing from Simon Fowler and Simon Palmer. You can watch both videos below.
No North American tour dates for the band at the moment but there is a list of European dates below, along with the LP's artwork and tracklist, plus those two videos.
