"Grapevine interview" - Reykjavik Grapevine


Self titled debut album Esja released in Iceland, August 2008



"Take a trip now
Dont think back hard
Have no fear"
This is the core of Esja, a sense of moving and travelling of body and spirit. The songsmiths Daniel and Krummi have totally different backgrounds in music. Krummi coming from hardcore metal rock band Minus, is eager to express his simple bluesy guitar playing side while Daniel has a stronger need to break away from his electronic and pop roots in GusGus and convey his thoughts in a more laid back organic environment. When they first got together in October 2006 they instantly clicked and started writing songs that do not reflect their previous work, but instead something straight from their collective subconscious minds.

Esja is a blues/country/rock band that conjures a mixture of storytelling moods and simple straight from the heart songwriting close to and in the fields of dark country, southern rock and rolling blues. Esja is rock in motion.
