THE WYTCHES

 

Formed in November 2011 after moving down from Peterborough, this Brighton based Surf/Doom three piece comprise of guitar/organ/lead vocalist Kristian; semi-professional poker playing drummer Gianni, and fiercely eloquent bassist Dan, who is currently writing a science fiction novel by the name of The Curious Adventures of Charlie Revel. They released their first single, the AA-side 'Beehive Queen/Crying Clown', via HateHateHate Records on June 3rd 2013, which sold out almost immediately. Following the success of 'Beehive Queen', the band re-released 'Digsaw' as a limited white label 7”. In November 2013, the band released a second AA side single, ‘Robe For Juda / Wide At Midnight’ again with HateHateHate records. This has gained them more radio play from the likes of Zane Lowe and Huw Stephens (for which the band recorded a live session at Maida Vale) at BBC Radio 1, and Marc Riley on BBC 6 Music who has had them in for live sessions twice this year.


The second Wytches album was released on Heavenly Recordings in 2016 and was titled ‘All Your Happy Life.’ The album was recorded by Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds / Grinderman) in Chapel Studios in Lincolnshire and then Toe Rag in East London, and mixed by Sclavunos and Mikey Young (Total Control Eddy Current Suppression.)
