The band formerly known as ’Ørmstons’ has undergone a massive reinvention including changing their name, and their newest single is an absolute tour de force.

Now going by the new name RAE, ‘Never Meant To Start A Witch Hunt’ is heavier than a Rugby prop and bites like a rabid Yorkshire Terrier. They’re a typical indie band who aren’t bothered about becoming world famous, it’s the music they care about the most. RAE was announced to the world in January 2020. A time for a clean slate and a new journey.

Jess, Will, Bob and Jamie are no strangers to being in a band together, previously know as ‘Ørmstons’, they have grown together as friends and musicians and are ready to take the next leap into the big black pit, or as its normally called – the music industry. Their music takes a spin on indie/pop and indie/rock – the best of both worlds. Lyrically, they touch upon all the issues we face as we grow up, love and heartbreak (which we will go through over ad over again in our lives), politics, mental health. The band aspire to be as raw and real as they can be in both person and in their music.

The way I see it they’re like a cross between Blondie and the Manic Street Preachers. Frontwoman Jessica Huxham is the star of the show, and can captivate audiences at the drop of a hat. Her lyrics are haunting and quiet, similar to Morrissey’s back in his prime.

This track is the flag in the ground that marks RAE’s reinvention. It’s not quite Bohemian Rhapsody or Jailhouse Rock, but it is simple and easy to listen to, and well worth a few repeats.
