“Esben remind you of the malice in wonderland, the beauty in horror and the horror in beauty” – The Guardian
Set to feature on the next Dance To The Radio 4 x 12” alongside Drink Up Buttercup & Milk White White Teeth the Leeds based songsmith returns to the Brudenell with his beautiful live show. Having supported Blue Roses and Bombay Bicycle Club already this year, he is set for big things. Paul Thomas Saunders is a man wise beyond his years influenced by the likes of Joe Meek and Leonard Cohen.
“His whisky-soaked vocals belie his years, and the understated delicacy of his songs is a lovely treat” - The Fly HONOUR BEFORE GLORY (Whiskas / ¡Forward, Russia!)
What needs to be said? Honour Before Glory is the solo project from Whiskas of Dance To The Radio / ¡Forward, Russia! Fame. Think a mix between Jason Molina (Magnolia Electric Co), My Bloody Valentine and TV On The Radio and you’re pretty much there. We’re delighted to have him playing.
“HBG is a great, naturally tentative and atmospheric piece of work” - Steve Lamacq At Brudenell Social Club.
