Esoterica is a promising melodic/progressive/indie rock band I discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about three months ago with their impressive work; Humanity, off from their latest release, In Dreams, which was released as a full-length album not long ago in 2020. The band is officially making releases since 2005. They have started their careers with a full-length album called; The Fool (Special Edition) (2005), continued with three long-play albums, The Riddle (2010), Nothing Left to Lose (2012), In Dreams (2020), and seven single releases, Silence (2009), Tomorrow I Won’t Remember (2010), Gone (2019), In Dreams (2019), Humanity (2020), I Won’t Give Up On You (2020), and The Still (Live at Abbey Road) (2020). Now, please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.
Esoterica is one of the most impressive bands I discovered lately, who is making a gigantic difference in music, and separating themselves from everyone else with everything that belongs to Esoterica brand. You immediately feel the league difference among many underground bands when you watch or listen to their music. I must admit that I am mindblown by the standards of this band. Hands down. When it comes to the song, Humanity, I’d like to say that this is a tremendous job with exceptional technical standards, easy listening and mainstream hit oriented build, irresistible atmosphere, top-class mixing, and addictive melodies. There are tons of positive things to say about this song, and believe it or not, it is so challenging for me to write when it comes to music such as this, but I’ll do my best.
The song makes an impressive introduction with a beautiful storyline, very well handled and put together. It prepares the listener perfectly for what’s coming next. I listened to the song a dozen times before writing my article here, and what struck me the most was their collective sound. They have decided to keep everything as simple as possible while focusing more on the overall atmosphere here, which is admirable. As you might remember from some of my previous articles, I am listening to tons of new music every day, and this is one of the very few examples with such impressive work in terms of collectiveness. Believe me, you don’t come across this happening very often. We all used to hear such togetherness only from legendary bands such as Depeche Mode, Linkin Park, Keane… I know this is a decision first of all, and being able to achieve it. Keeping every instrument separate or together won’t make you a great band, yet doing it so fantastic, such as in our example, will definitely do so.
