Having spent the last year touring with Charli XCX and collaborating with the likes of Tourist, Esther Joy returns with a new EP entitled The Acid Caves Vol 1.

Based on a supernatural universe created in Esther’s mind, The Acid Caves follows the story of Silipur, an illegal alien immigrant to Earth who leaves her home planet illicitly in search of energy and connection she is in desperate need of.

The first offering from the EP, "Day 1 (Silipur Leaves Home)", is a bewitching mix of dynamic sounds and tones that sound as ethereal and alien as the story Esther is trying to convey.

Esther will be releasing each track with a section of story. Below is the excerpt for "Day 1 (Silipur Leaves Home)":

"Silipur is not human. She is quick witted, intelligent, and dry. A cynical, soul but a desperate romantic, a believer in hope but holds none of her own. She is lawless and wild."

"Slipur is alone. She has a family and she has friends but Silipur - is - alone. Just because you can see The Chaos doesn't mean always mean you have enough, doesn't mean you don't crave more emotion. In fact, seeing it makes you need more. Silipur feels pain as she craves to feel more. Her pain is more than a human could feel."

"Silipur slips quietly out of her pod and down to the newly opened Earth portal. Gate E. She sits, heart pounding as she wrestles with the idea of jumping. It is illegal to cross planets without permission, punishable by death as the trade could take a human's life. She doesn't care. She has never liked humans, but longed for a planet so overwhelmed with The Chaos. Beautiful Chaos. She can feel it's energy - she would never hurt again."

"Somewhere on Earth, a girl is crying. She cannot do it anymore. Silipur jumps. And so does she."

The Acid Caves Vol 1 is out 27 April.
