Esque: Tonightmares

Tonightmares Cover Art
After a couple of EP's, Esque's debut full length, Tonightmares,  is the realization of what an art rock album can be. The Brooklyn trio employees a cast of thousands including keyboards from former Psychedelic Fur Joe McGinty and production by former Fiery Furnace Toshi Yano. Right from the start the tracks evoke the ghost of Roxy Music and spring forth with a dark pattern of serious musicality masquerading as power pop. The production is sterling and the guitars weave intricate patterns that draw the listener into the heart of the music. Esque get it right in every way, vocally, lyrically and musically. Stream and download Tonightmares at the link below or risk waking up in the middle of the night with visions of Bryan Ferry asking you why.
