Founded in 2013, US Dark Pop outfit, Esoterik, have steadily evolved into what one fan lovingly coined as Pagan-Synth. The band, comprised of Allison Eckfeldt and Brady Bledsoe, started to quickly gain momentum coming off the heels of their 1st US tour supporting Austria’s own Nachtmahr in the Spring of 2014. In 2015, they teamed up with German producer Krischan Wesenberg (Rotersand) to put the finishing touches on their sophomore full length “Atonement.” The album produced several singles and music videos with “Necrodancer” still holding strong as a fan favorite.
In May of 2017, Esoterik released the “Set Fire to Me” EP that included several re-worked versions of tracks off their debut album “Enlightenment.” The EP, produced by Gregor Beyerle (Nachtmahr L’Âme Immortelle), included a new music video alongside the single “Spirits Light the Way,” which was very well received by fans. In late 2018, they signed with German label Trisol Music Group and quickly hit the studio to polish up their third album,“Énouement.” The album prompted a flurry of singles leading up to the release including visualizers and full production music video for the single, “Seidhr.”
After coming off the road from a six-week tour supporting UK based act Grendel in August of 2019, the band patiently used the downtime 2020 provided to finish writing songs for their latest album “Alchemy”. The album was released in March 2022 and is available on all major digital platforms and in CD format. Leading up to the full length, the band released several EPs available digitally with each including an eclectic mix of collaborations highlighting each single.
