Esser

Satisfied

Pic: Jo McCaughey
The similarity between 1997 chart-topping one-hit-wonder White Town and Esser are that both chaps ply the trade of bedroom-dwelling cut-and-paste pattering pop, collaged from palettes of eerie 1930s Hollywood movie soundtracks. The difference is that White Town had one colossal choon, whereas Esser has a handful of pretty good indie-disco floor-fillers. This is still a long way from the sure-fire 4am last-song status of ‘Your Woman’, mind.
