Following the impeccable debut LP Annabel Dream Reader The Wytches have ditched some of their liquorice black blood for something a little lighter with a touch more colour. ‘C-Side’ is the latest effort and comes form the forthcoming LP All Your Happy Life and although it still has the power we’d expect it earmarks a band of growth.
When we last saw The Wytches peddling their doomy sound we anticipated a heavy, dark flash in the pan. A Guinness shit if you will. Powerful and captivating but essentially it would have to go away at some point. ‘C-Side’ speaks of a band who is nto afraid to move and grow, adapting their trademark sound to great effect.
Adding a little more urgency and a lot of extra grit as opposed to heavy riffs and heavier hair; ‘C-Side’ reeks of a band on the move.
If you’re brave enough make sure you see them live. They’re scarily good.
