about

ESK-ESQUE plays raw blues like they came running straight from the cotton fields.
With winding voice, authentic guitar playing, vile foot stomping and erratic grooving baritone sax the tarnished stories come to life.
Enter a world of insincere interplay between lovers and the devil. Or see yourself on a deserted station the train always passes by.

Raw gravelly blues with hints of rhythm & soul and garage rock.

Muziek bij de Buren:
“…If you'd have to compare Esk-esque’s raw blues with water, it would be a river. Not straight like a canal, but tossing and turning to its heart's content…"

• William van Giessen (vocals, guitar, drums)
• Menno Romers (baritone sax)

Track Name: I'm Sure We'll Die
I’m sure we’ll die

Oh no and see what I have found
All the paintings on the wall
Are scary ones
They will haunt me all night long
Will you save me?

I’ll try to hold you tight
In the middle of the night
You’ll recognize the trust
I’m sure well die

One shot is all it takes
Before the lightning strikes
And the house reclaims its hate
Upon your soul

I’ll try...

The graveyard
Ain’t your last place
Empty frame
Needs to be replaced
On the wall
With the skin of your face

I’ll try...
Track Name: Brother
Brother

Brother, don’t you know?
Brother, don’t you know?
We must pave the road
For our children before we go

Heard about your troubles
You laughed away
Couldn’t find another
Another brother is not okay

Brother...

Challenge awaits
Help me on my way
We’ll make sure
The kids are okay

Brother...
Track Name: You and the Devil
You and the Devil

You and the devil
Decided a long time ago
You’ll be playing
With my heart and my soul
Despite the arrow
Cupid let off

You let me travel
A long distance in the night
You said we’d meet there
In the woods with no moonlight
I waited and waited
Only to survive

The next morning
I was found with
Glitters and gold
All around me
You took my love
And carried me down
You and the devil
Burn in hell everlong
Track Name: Hear Me
Hear me

Tell me tell me
I’m not your kind
Tell me tell me
You must be blind

How long must I go
How far to find your love

Hear me hear me
Turn this feeling on
Hear me hear me
Go prejudice go

How long...

See me see me
Trying to look strong
See me see me
Waiting to be gone

How long...
