On their first album in 4 years, The Wytches ditch the Campy, Ghoulish Garage Punk for an exhausted, bluesy album. It’s got a colorful, Psychedelic atmosphere, nods to a lot of the band’s influencers, as well as lyrics that are emotionally investing. I just wish it finished as strongly as it started.

Packed with mega riffs and emotion, the new record by The Wytches is a shift in direction compared to their previous work. It's heavier and bluesier and it plays excellently into the bands strengths. One of the year's finest rock records thus far.
I saw The Wytches live in 2014, before they release their debut album. as a support of Blood Red Shoes. An association with them and other garage rock revival bands, with The Strokes and The White Stripes among others, is not baseless. We got a solid indie / garage rock with psychedelic vibe. I give an OK mark!
Lovin the heavier vibe they went with on this album. Also you can see some Bad Seeds and Elliot Smith influence. Pretty amazing combo if you ask me. We shall see how this album feels after sometime but I'm thinking I'll love it forever. Check it out if you like some raw emotional infectious rock!
