NYC’s own Esseks kicks us into the weekend with an exquisitely warped single from his forthcoming The Villains Journey album on Deadbeats.

The aptly titled “Watching From A Distance” is a slow churning creeper that rides that fine line between introspection and straight up howling at the moon. Unfolding like the soundtrack to a sci-fi cinematic masterpiece, the alien sniper vibes reign supreme as the genre-bending flex that Esseks delivers on the ever-evolving cut tickles the nerves in all the right way.

As Esseks tells it, the cut is “a small piece of a bigger picture.” One that will no doubt unfold as the full tapestry of The Villains Journey will soon reveal.

This one’s out now so check the Bassrush premiere below and download / steam here.
