Brighton’s Esben & the Witch have returned with a primal, stark video for “No Dog”, a track taken from the trio’s forthcoming split 12” with Bristol’s Thought Forms.
The clip directed by Adam Kola, focuses on a particularly intense performance of “No Dog”, it perfectly captures the tumultuous nature of the band’s live show: the volatile propulsion of their rhythm section, the unsettling dissonance of Thomas Fisher’s cacophonous guitar, &, at the eye of the storm, Rachel Davies’ lone, unadorned voice.
Alongside this, the band have also announced plans for a string of shows from March to August – with more soon to be announced – including a headline date at London’s Buffalo Bar, slots at Oxfordshire’s Supernormal Festival & the Cult of Luna-curated Beyond the Redshift (alongside Thought Forms), as well as a live performance of the La Antena score at Latitude. All dates below.
12” expected to be released on April 7th via Geoff Barrow’s Invada Records. Pre-order your copy here.

03.29 at Buffalo Bar, London
05.10 at Beyond the Redshift Festival, London
07.19 at Latitude Festival, Southwold (performing live score to La Antena)
08.08-10 at Supernormal Festival, Oxfordshire
