Whew, I appreciate this song. I listened to Esmeralda and To Be Alone from this EP as well. I like to indulge myself into folky, ambient music occasionally. What I like most about these three songs are grim, obscure vibes presented through the themes of loss, loneliness, death. I prefer Esmeralda out of these 3. It has left strongest impression on me, because of its deep, dark serious root which can't be missed. To Be Alone is somehow maybe even too long, but lyrical content is very good ( In the darkness a shallow poison, and it has grown, I bite my tongue, there's a fever, I will not let it go... whew ). And yes, crispiness, but yet strong voice makes atmosphere even more captivating. 

He actually has 3 released albums, so I will probably give them a shot as well.

King of reviews, Poopfection is shook!

I totally agree, it's dark, moody and sometimes atmospheric. I've listened to the rest of the EP and Esmeralda is a close second. You thought To Be Alone is long, the 4th track Burgh Island is over 8mins long dead2

I really hope to discover more of these moody songs by him cry4

I knew about that one, but didn't want to address in fear of writing more than I should. dead2

I will definitely check his debut. It reminds me a little bit of Passenger.
