Wash the Sins not Only the Face
is the second album from Brighton-based trio Esben and the Witch. To make their second album, Esben and the Witch questioned, challenged and rewired their past to find the way to their future. They wanted the album to unfurl like a journey, like a day, where opening songs are possessed of a brightness, an optimism that ebbs away over the record’s course.
Unlike debut album Violet Cries
, the lyrics of Wash the Sins not Only the Face
were written solely by Rachel Davies and are influenced by surrealism.
New 2013 album! Frosty dream-pop 'n' transcendent psych-folk from the UK trio, for fans of Bridezilla and Zola Jesus. Includes "Deathwaltz".
