A few months ago, I was lucky enough to come across a band that completely blew me away with their live performance.
Since then, I have waited for the right moment to feature them on my blog while I’ve been digging their music and following the updates including the exciting news about their new EP.
So after having the pleasure of attending the EP launch on Tuesday night (May the 8th) at The Hope in Brighton, now my dear music lovers, let me properly introduce you The Wytches – a Brighton/Peterborough based band to which this saying applies without a doubt: ‘Once seen, never forgotten.’
You might think The Wytches are just another band swinging through the underground music scene and playing some loud grunge rock, that will make your ears ache.
Well, they might be, but not many of those bands, especially after you see them live, leave you with such an impression that literally screams out the words ‘Holy Shit’.
Kristian Bell (vocal and lead guitar), Gianni Honey (drums) and Dan Rumsey (bass) have a special gift to give the crowd something unique and original. And it’s not easy to describe to those who haven’t seen them play, how incredible and powerful the atmosphere they provide while on stage is.
It’s their charisma, realness and a simple ‘Don’t give a fuck’ attitude while playing and singing as loud as they can (sometimes even throwing things around) that makes you just shake your head in disbelief and go ‘Wow’.
That’s the power of The Wytches. Trust me. This is a band you want to see live.
Their Tuesday EP launch was full of great music from the start thanks to the supporting bands Kid Capola, Sky Harbour and Rising Tide! All three bands rocked and it was so good to discover some new music!
Some very close fans came to support The Wytches on this important night and enjoy the great set of all their tracks. It was an insane, sound cracking and a brilliant experience once again!
The lead singer Kristian is an incredible singer/guitarist and both Dan – playing the bass and Gianni the drums, have totally smashed it through the whole thing. Simply ‘kick ass’.
I was glad that my friend really enjoyed their performance, so the band has gained a new fan. All the guests had a chance to get their hands on one of the awesome limited hand drawn EP’s from the band!
The whole night was just a really good fun filled with friendly people and a quality music!
I’ll be definitely seeing the guys soon again!
