The appeal of raw material is sometimes difficult to avoid. That’s how we felt when first hearing several tracks from Witching Waves debut LP, Fear of Falling. The London-based trio has a predilection for lo-fi punk and snappy pop arrangements that feature girl-boy tradeoffs on vocals; it is unrefined, yet alluring noise pop. We find it hard not to think about how this band will evolve and the road that lies ahead, but that’s getting ahead of ourselves. For now, enjoy our choice picks below, pick up Fear of Falling on December 8 via Soft Power Records, and keep Witching Waves on your radar.
