Review: 'ESBE'
'Hope (EP)'   

-  Label: 'MMC Recordings'
-  Genre: 'Indie' -  Release Date: '1st February 2019'

Our Rating:
This is a sampler EP with a selection of four tracks drawn from three albums, one of which, Calling comes from 'Ten Songs', a collection which, as I write, is yet to be released.

All the tunes are confusingly labelled as 'radio edits' although the album versions are not significantly longer.

When The Love Has Gone (Hope) and Living Death (I Believe In Love) are from the album Mystra - Songs From Byzantium.

Seek is the most exotic of the quartet. This is from Desert Songs, an album composed of English translations of 8th-13th century Middle Eastern poems.

The Arabesque textures of the richly layered arrangements are so evident that it's no surprise to learn that the London-based artist has previously worked with Natasha Atlas.

A classical training enables Esbe to use her voice as a powerful and emotionally charged instrument and contributes to an enigmatic and poetic taster that leaves you intrigued enough to want to hear more.
