Autumn Falls @ Atelier 210 - Brussels (be) + Cheap Time, JC Satan
Hypnotic, Arabian funeral. Depression in the desert. Sepia rainbows.
This is the psychedelic nightmare spun by The Wytches, who are spreading their subversive message across the UK in the dark guise of 50s surf riffs, desert whips, melancholic shuffles and a kaleidoscopic stage performance that will put you under.
Formed in November 2011 after moving down from Peterborough, this Brighton based SurfDoom three piece comprise of guitar/organ/lead vocalist Kristian; semi professional poker playing drummer Gianni, and fiercely eloquent bassist Dan, who is currently writing an Adventure novel by the name of The Curious Adventures of Charlie Revel.
The group gained a strong following from their debut single, and self produced video Digsaw, and have been gaining in notoriety ever since thanks to their spellbinding live shows. Think Nirvana’s Bleach, The Arctic Monkey’s Humbug, The Horrors’ Strange House and you’re half way there; because with songs that make you feel dirty to sing, and undeniable rhythm that will have you moving against all efforts to resist, the Wytches are a band you will not easily forget.
2013 has seen The Wytches supporting a rich variety of acts including Death Grips, The Black Angels, Chelsea Wolfe, Bosnian Rainbows, Japandroids, Temples, Metz and Drenge.
They released their second single, the AA-side Beehive Queen/Crying Clown, via HateHateHate Records on June 3rd, which sold out almost immediately. Following the success of Beehive Queen, the band rereleased Digsaw as a limited white label 7″.
