“Esca” is a product of on-the-spur ingenuity and improvisation. Speaking on how the track developed, the group said:
Cancer‘s new track starts off on the slow side with a gradual buildup of instrumental delivery leading up to the inspiring vocals of Nikolaj Vonsild, that are as always singular. The emotions are directly conveyed to your heart with his voice that surprises and lowers your guard. Besides that, the intentional spaces on the song are admirable and the Finne Kristensen‘s creatively improvised instrumentation at the end also does its bit in this beautifully crafted song.
