The Wytches are releasing their second full-length album ‘All Your Happy Life’ this Friday (30th September), and ‘Crest Of Death’ is its final preview.
In a recent DIY interview with the band, Kristian Bell hinted at a future of even weirder things for the band, and ‘Crest of Death’ is as twisted as they come. Cramming a freight train of aggression and gritty melody into less than two minutes, vocalist Bell is at his most vicious.
Following the bewitching ‘C-side’, ‘Crest of Death’ signals even more brutal things from ‘All Your Happy Life’, and is the sign of a band getting more intense as they progress.
Gigs will take place in January.
The Wytches - Three Mile Ditch
It shows The Wytches always had a sweet side, deep down.
Enough familiarity to feel like returning home, and enough tweaks to the formula to resist sounding like National-by-numbers.
A fizzing, frantic mission statement showing that, just maybe, growing up isn’t all that.
