It has been a while since I've found anything captivating on the folk / indie scene, but today we're breaking the cycle. Not only that, but this is actually Esther & Fatou's debut signgle. "At Night" feels absolutely polished and superbly beautiful, so if you dig stuff like First Aid Kit, Fleet Foxes you will feel in heaven.
The Belgium duo and their voices sound like the soundtrack of a walk in the forest, just before the Christmas mood kicks in. You know, those times when you try to reflect on things and solitude in much needed. Esther & Fatou and their sound is your guide in those cold, dark winter evenings.
When it comes to the track, the girls share:
It’s a song about the way everything is seen in a different light at night, the track was inspired by a nighttime walk through the city, when we began to wonder about ourselves and other people.
In a very organized society in which everyone is expected to make a distinct contribution, there comes the night: full of chaos, everyone is left with their thoughts, insecurities and secrets. The nighttime raises more questions about existence and faith. By morning; they all seem to disappear.
