Super dense and dreamy vapour-wave/electro-industrial album here, with shoegazey tendencies as well. The production is really quite something! Does tend to hit a snag a bit too often, but overall this was pretty good!

Standout: Got U
Favs: Dagger III, Tower, Fake Fuck, Calm down, Light hours linger
Least fav: Drop
Witch House’s best return with a grimey, shoegazey vengeance.
I'm not sure about the vocals but overall It's a consistent album, the cover talks for itself
Just when you thought Witch house is only a one-phase sound, White Ring fuses elements of shoegaze-y guitars and drifts into a more dreamy sound, contrary to the common nightmare-ish motif of the genre. I am beyond raving for this album and I shall be playing this nonstop.
WR's first LP release since the death of original member Kendra Malia. this is hyper-competent witch house, full of original touches and not afraid to mix the beat in radical ways. late-night DJ's can thank Kurkimilis for letting them take a break since they can just start this record and walk away. Adina Viarengo's vocals are strong and don't get too washed out by the distortion. not as chopped and screwed as some witch house but I prefer the drone and gaze elements so that is fine with me.
