Splinter group Esmerine is really a chamber rock and roll ensemble shaped by Bruce Cawdron and Beckie Foon, users of Godspeed You Dark Emperor! along with a Sterling silver Mt. Zion, respectively. Unlike their additional bands, Esmerine does not have guitars, instead concentrating on drums, cello, and marimbas. After gigging around Montreal, they released their debut recording, ONLY IF a Nice Surrender towards the Evenings to Come Become True, within the U.K. label Resonant in-may of 2003. Precisely two years later on, the group adopted up their debut’s achievement with Aurora within the extremely revered Ninja Melody imprint.
