Esoterik – Trickster!

“Pagan Synth” band, ESOTERIK has just unveiled their new single, “Trickster”. The track appears on the forthcoming EP, Archetypes due out later this year.

With this single, the band immersed themselves in the chaos that creates and destroys. Is it a mask to hide behind or is it a necessity to arouse the senses and courage for change?

Life is never enough, and satisfaction is always just out of reach for the Trickster. Follow their footsteps and feel the intoxication of a game that is not your own. Bring levity to those who have greater purpose than your own. Embrace the cosmic joke that the end is the beginning. 

“Trickster” is available on all major digital platforms including Bandcamp and Spotify.

About the forthcoming EP, Archetypes

On the upcoming EP, Archetypes, the band examines the tropes that have weaved a thread across societies for centuries. “It’s such an interesting topic and really highlights the power of language whether written or passed down via  word of mouth. The legends hold a commonality that span through time and culture. Before the world was connected by technology, these stories held the experiences and wisdom for generators to come. Whether they are steeped in symbolism or ritual, the lessons are still infused and if sensational, that only ensures the survival beyond our limited life spans.”   

Founded in 2013, US Dark Pop outfit, ESOTERIK, have steadily evolved into what fans have lovingly coined as Pagan-Synth. The band, comprised of Allison Eckfeldt and Brady Bledsoe, is known for their heady potion of soundscapes that highlight the melodic side of 80’s synthpop alongside the intensity of rock sensibilities. With lyrical content that explores the human condition and how we experience life with senses known and unknown, each compassion beckons the listener towards deep exploration of shadow and light. Their last release, “Alchemy”, has been described as “an album which has mystical folk tendrils, spliced together with electronic synths and rhythms. It is beautiful and danceable with a spiritual center, calling back to a time when our ancestors were more in-tune to the world they walked in and the earth was far more listened to.” 

Gearing up for most extensive US tour yet, ESOTERIK will be joining forces with scene veterans, Combichrist, for the “Only Death is Immortal” tour in March for what will undoubtedly be a high-octane all-out assault of the senses. With more road time also comes new inspiration with several singles being slated for spring and summer. The first single off the upcoming EP, “Trickster,” is sonically reminiscent of something you would have heard blasting in a club back in 1986 alongside “Bizarre Love Triangle”. With Allison Eckfeldt’s highly emotive vocal delivery and a grit we haven’t seen before,  it’s easy to get swept away in the chaos that is quintessential to the Trickster.
