Download: Can You Feel It
With the intention of attacking indie on its head with an array of guitar driven belters, Eskers are yet another four piece band to emerge from the streets of Birmingham, yet again proving the current strength of the Midland’s music scene.
Always followed by a mob of lively fans that never fail to make an Eskers gig one to remember, the band produce a perfect mix of lively madness which provokes the perfect atmosphere for the typical uncontrollable indie mayhem. Sporting an impressive and distinctive cover of ‘Pharaohs’ by SBTRKT, Eskers prove their music writing abilities, as they are able to completely transform the dance hit into a rocky and sophisticated cover. However, it is latest single ‘Can You Feel It’ that stands out as the gem on their Soundcloud; demanding your attention from the offset before building into a chorus that explodes with a mix of guitars and dynamic drums that attacks you from all angles.
Having performed various gigs at the much loved venue The Rainbow (made a place of Birmingham hipster pilgrimage after the original ‘Btown’ founders, Peace, Swim Deep, Jaws and Superfood played their infamous 2012 Christmas gig at the venue), Eskers look to make waves in the thriving Midlands music scene. And with tracks like ‘Can You Feel it’ and ‘Patchwork’, they certainly prove they deserve your attention.
