The Wytches are best accustomed to grizzly doom-bringing freakouts, but there’s a softer side to their fuzzy embrace on the odd occasion. It creeps up and lays a hand on your back, instead of jumping on top for a frightful piggyback.
This sweet side is showcased in ‘Darker’’s opening half - but that’s before the newly unveiled B-side (to new single ‘Burn Out the Bruise’) morphs into one of the biggest monsters this Brighton band have unveiled to date.
‘Darker’ follows on from the debut album ‘Annabel Dream Reader’, which is out now on Heavenly.
