The third single of Cancer's debut album Totem is entitled “Esca”. It starts off slowly with an instrumental presentation building up to the impressive vocal from Nikolaj Vonsild. There is a great spacious feeling on the track and the very precise instrumentation from Kristian Finne Kristensen and the rest of the band wraps the song beautifully.
Cancer explain how they worked with the songs in the studio in a very improvised way:
'“The outro of “Esca” is a good example of how open the structure of our recordings were. We are all standing in a circle sweating and waiting to see where the drummer takes the song - and then we follow. The track was about to have its conclusion just before this outro but the tape is rolling and he stays in the moment and grabs the outro out of thin air”
