If you’ve never heard of The Wytches before, don’t worry, we’ll get you caught up. This three piece band from Brighton has been described as “raw-throat punk” meets “stoner/doom psych”.
The Wytches are Kristian Bell (vocals, guitar), Dan Rumsey (bass, vocals) and Gianni Honey (drums), and when the three of these gentlemen met, magic happened. Their feral delivery and overdriven, surf-like guitar bends create a sound that is raucous and unruly, and yet decorated with semi-automatic poetry and authentic emotional clout.
They’ve been touring in support of Blood Red Shoes, The Cribs, Drenge, METZ, Japandroids, and have prduced many singles and an EP, but now the band has dropped the news that they will be releasing their first full length titled Annabel Dream Reader on August 26.
Listen to a few of their tracks below and let us know what you think. You can also catch the band at their first Toronto show at The Drake Underground on July 21.
