Esthesis is a progressive & alternative rock project formed and led by French multi-instrumentalist Aurélien Goude (music, lyrics, keyboards, vocals, guitars, bass and other stuff). The current line up is composed of three other musicians : 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 a debut album in November 2020 ("The Awakening"). "The Awakening" has been acclaimed by many rock magazines around the world and Esthesis won the Prog Magazine Reader's Poll in December 2020 ("best unsigned band 2020").

The highly anticipated new Esthesis album, "Watching Worlds Collide", has been released on 19th August 2022, with two official music videos, on the independent label and music production company Misty Tones founded by Aurélien Goude. The album is now available on Bandcamp in two CD editions (including a red deluxe limited and numbered CD edition with bonus), digital and streaming.


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. Esthesis is currently on tour.
