Pop is always interesting when it takes a turn for the ominous, and Esh is no exception to that rule.
The downcast pop of Esh is part Adele, part Tove Lo — mournful and slow while retaining a more nasally inflection and immersive electronic production. Esh makes a strong case for merging these two genres more frequently, spectral synths moaning over unobtrusive drums and impassioned vocals. Esh (Sarai Givaty) casts a dusky pall over her music, looming large above the dull brilliance of the production behind her. Pop is always interesting when it takes a turn for the ominous, and Esh is no exception to that rule.
“I'm really excited for the EP to come out and feel very blessed that the singles have been received so well,” says Givaty. “Working with Liam Howe was an amazing experience; he influenced the EP a lot, as well as recording in East London.”
Esh releases today, July 29.
