Album Review The Wytches - All Your Happy Life4 Stars
Cult heroes The Wytches have cast another stellar spell.
It’s been impossible, at any time in the previous three years or so, to attend a gig anywhere in the UK and not see at least one person wearing a Wytches t-shirt. That’s no surprise, given the way 2014 debut ‘Annabel Dream Reader’ and its insta-classic singles resonated far further than the fuzzy indie world from which they originated.
It’s possible, then, that follow-up ‘All Your Happy Life’ could prove divisive; if their debut was ‘a little bit goth’, LP2 has grabbed all the black hair dye Camden Market could ever sell, stockpiled pairs of New Rock boots, and wiped a whole branch of Boots of its kohl eyeliner.
There might be a handful of quieter moments on this record, but they’re definitely not light. While ‘Annabel Dream Reader’ flipped constantly from highs to lows, ‘All Your Happy Life’ perfects the notion of living under a black cloud throughout. Gloomy, grey but definitely not dull, The Wytches have cast another stellar spell.
