The clock has struck midnight, and magic is in the air. It’s time to step into the Witching Hour. 
 Witching Hour (a.k.a. Claire Quartz) makes magical pop music. Her distinct candy goth vision maintains a delicate balance between light and dark, and exudes a playful moodiness that keeps you on your toes. She’ll draw you in with her cheeky lyrics and glittering synths, then break you with her gut punching depictions of love, loss, and grief. Sweetly devastating and encouragingly cathartic, Witching Hour takes you on a swirling odyssey of self love and emotional exploration, navigating a world filled with pure joy and vicious heartbreak. These pulsing, intimate glimpses into her life are injected with juicy bass lines, infectious hooks, and rich textural flourishes. 
 After growing a colourful collection of beat-driven emopop tracks, Witching Hour is ready to stun audiences with a blast of her sonic pixie dust. As she nurtured her mystical music baby from her inner eastern Melbourne bedroom, it blossomed into a surreal hybrid of ✨ influences ✨ ranging from Billie Eilish to Paramore. You won’t know what to expect – and that’s just how she likes it. Following up her debut The Spell, and her second single Colourblind, and her third offering Hell Hath No Fury Like, her new single Queen Of Wands drops on June 24th. With a 7-track EP following shortly after, prepare to be spellbound.
