Have You Heard? Emily Magpie - The Witching Hour

Emily Magpie - The Witching Hour

There’s an intense, vital energy to the track that engulfs everything around it.

Bristol-based singer Emily Magpie’s debut EP, last year’s ‘Same Stuff’, was a dark, demonic trip through folk and pop. Its follow-up, new single ‘The Witching Hour’, is anything but the same stuff, though.

Conceived after reading a book about the witch trials, ‘The Witching Hour’ is described by Emily as “it’s a song about claiming your own power deep from within you,” and there’s an intense, vital energy to the track that engulfs everything around it.

Swooping, creepy swirls of electronics clatter into the singer’s high but menacing vocals, and though she sings “I am young but unafraid,” there’s a fear that courses through ‘The Witching Hour’, and it’s one that propels the track forward, running through the night.

Emily Magpie's new single 'The Witching Hour' is released on 26th May.
