RICH LIST 'ESHA NESS' SINGLE
'ESHA NESS' IS THE DEBUT SINGLE FROM ELECTRO ART-POP ACTIVISTS RICH LIST
Esha Ness was the name of the horse that famously won the 1993 Grand National that never was. And it ran the second fastest time in history. After the second false start, the race was declared void. Unfortunately nobody could get the message across to jockey John White:
“The race was restarted, and off I went. That was it. You don’t ride it like an ordinary race. You have to have your wits about you, and just focus on getting your horse around the track.”
— John White (Jockey)
He did. He won. But he didn't!
Does all this sound like a metaphor for human existence? Or love? Well, it did to electro art-pop activists RICH LIST, so they wrote a song about it. (The metaphor, that is. Not the horse.)
“You were never really winning / But you must keep running / You’ve gotta keep running / You’ve got to out run the emptiness / The loneliness.”
— Esha Ness
They've also shot an artfully grainy and galloping new video for the song. It's a ride.
‘ESHA NESS’, from the upcoming album HOLD YOUR FORKED TONGUE, is available from 31 March 2017 on Strataville.
