Esthesis is a progressive rock band formed by Aurélien Goude (music, lyrics, keyboards, vocals, guitars, bass and other stuff). The current line up is composed of Aurélien Goude, Baptiste Desmares (lead guitar), Marc Anguill (bass) and Arnaud Nicolau (drums).
Esthesis music is characterized by many influences (british rock, film score, jazz, ambient, metal, electronic music…) and primarily based on emotion and ambiences. After a first sold out EP in 2019 (“Raising Hands”), Esthesis released their debut album in November 2020 (“The Awakening”). The album was received well and Esthesis won the Prog Magazine Reader’s Poll in December 2020 (“best unsigned band 2020”).
Their new album “Watching Worlds Collide” has been released in August 2022 on the independent label Misty Tones. 7 new songs, 7 encounters and stories between different worlds that intersect and collide, with varied atmospheres. From jazz to alternative rock, from electro to movie music, “Watching Worlds Collide” is radically different from “The Awakening” but just as cinematic and emotional.
The album is now available on Bandcamp in two CD editions and digital versions.
ESTHESIS will perform at Night Of The Prog for the first time on Sunday, 16th July
Tickets for the Night Of The Prog Festival 2023 are available in our WiV Ticket Shop!
