Esbern Snare

“A Violent Peace”

(Self Release)

Musically there are numerous similarities between Esbern Snare and Sigur Ros. Nowhere are these comparisons more evident than on “Inside Your Coat,” a brilliantly arranged piece of sonic drama where slow, pulsing piano sets the mood and then builds on a glorious fog of layered keyboard orchestration. At times the voice of singer Luke Jones recalls Dave Matthews. It’s an interesting blend of dark, atmospheric instrumentation and a familiar vocal tone. The eight songs flow nicely into one another. Other standout tracks include the more pop “Anchorage” and “The Great Drowner.”
