I blogged about Esben and the Witch a couple of months ago and as has happened before in many occasions, they've upgraded their status some points up thanks to a couple of mentions on Pitchfork, one of them being the news about this single, Lucia At The Precipice, the last of the incursions of the always exciting Too Pure singles club, which means is a limited edition of 500 that will never be repressed. This song and the B side They Use Smiles To Bury You, follow the same patterns as the songs that appeared on their first EP 33, although Lucia is even more atmospheric and abstract that any of the songs they've done before and by the end of the song you can even think about the XX with those programmed rhythms although less minimal and more tragic. They are currently touring opening for them, Big Pink or Efterklang so maybe you will have the chance to see them live.
