Music Monday is a meme started by Drew the Tattooed Book Geek over on his blog. This is a bit of an impromptu MM for me. I kinda forgot it was Sunday yesterday, and kinda forgot it was Monday today. But there is a new song I’ve been listening to so it’s the perfect place to showcase it!
Essenger is a solo artist from Kansas City, Missouri that blends together electronic and synthwave. Beats in part inspired through alt metal and EDM. I first discovered him when he partnered with Young Medicine to release Lost Boys, part of last year’s full-length After Dark album.
Here’s his latest release, Plague Doctor, released just last week. While I’ve been listening to it on repeat on Spotify recently, I also bought it today from Bandcamp as that does more to support his music than any streaming service. And because I’m sentimental like that.
