From the cover, with old Esser in his skeleton jumper with reverse-monk hairstyle and despairing gaze, it’d be easy to confuse the singer with any of the numerous emo soundalikes conspiring to stunt all imagination in anyone under 18 with the inoffensive tedium they pass off as music.

Look closer though, and you notice that Esser, in all his glum glory, happens to be sitting on a toilet (though thankfully not as in graphic detail as Millie Jackson’s infamous Back to the Sh*t). An odd location surely, but one that begins to set him apart from any lookalikes – a theme continued in his music.

‘Satisfied’ is an interesting mix of calypso, piano and handclaps that dares to be innovative. Satisfyingly different.
