Having been rattling the DIY scene with their distinctive distortion, The Wytches If you are just currently getting familiar with Fat White Family, The Growlers and Blood Red Shoes the band have been busy casting their spell far across the county touring frequently after the release of their debut LP “Annabel Dream Reader”, which was released via Heavenly Recordings.

The Brighton via Peterborough trio have made their trademark heavy guitars and raw recordings that go some way to capture the DIY power of their live shows. The live to tape production favoured by the band can’t help but transport you to those dark, thrashing toilet venues where only this kind of music can be conceived.

Lauded as being one of the highlights of  last years Reading and Leeds Festival, with a superb frontman in Kristian Bell their album was recorded entirely on tape in just two days.

Following their 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 not 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 are at the Rescue Rooms very soon . They’re scarily good.



New single from the debut album ‘Annabel Dream Reader’ out on Heavenly Recordings came out in the summer of 2014 in the UK/Europe. Out on Partisan Records in the USA on the 26th August 2014. The Wytches are Kristian Bell on vocals and guitar, Gianni Honey on drums and Daniel Rumsey on bass and BVs, who together boast a strong surfer/psych vibe that’s dark, menacing and totally rooted in the DIY ethos that they began with. It’s noisy and brooding, which is just how we like it.
