Esper Scout-Poet Curses

Esper Scout are an all-female, experimental rock group from Leeds and have self-released the mini album Poet Curses.

The record opens with lead single Assumpta Tang a great track that features menacing riffs that loom heavily throughout it.  Swallowing the Sun sees a change of pace and has a great intro that gets you into the track straight away.  It would be remiss of me to not say there is similarities to Melissa Auf der Maur’s solo material and this can be heard on tunes like Gammal Gubbe.  Esper Scout also show they have a more progressive side on Fire, which is a particular highlight, before ending a great record with the superb Wallet of Brass Crowns
