Well it's easy to see why I like this album. It only has a cover of my favorite Sabbath song. Rachel Davies voice is so hunting and chilling and sounds right at home on Planet Caravan. The other 3 songs offer the classic Esban and the Witch sound.
Favorite track: Planet Caravan.
"We Melted The Wax, Now We Can See" is a collection of four acoustic songs. First of all our cover of Black Sabbaths 'Planet Caravan', a late night tour van staple for many years now, alongside reworkings of 'Marching Song' and 'Dig Your Fingers In'. And finally, something new, 'Like A Drunkard Reels'. This began life as a bass chord progression in the basement of our first home here in Berlin. From there the words have started to flow and the guitars unfurl around them. As we head into the studio, percussion and amplification beckon but in the meantime we present the song in its raw form, a black water-colour for night time sojourns into the city and beyond. And in the meantime rest assured we are readying the hammers and the chisels, preparing to carve out its final incarnation. For this EP represents a meditative calm before the storm. A moments reflection in the still air as something altogether different begins to take shape on the horizon. A deep, dark rumble emanates from out there and threatens the calm. More news soon but for now we hope this collection can become a companion for those dark winter nights ahead.
