The Wytches return with brand new single “Cowboy”. The triumphant and unexpected return comes four years after releasing two albums, Annabel Dream Reader and All Your Happy Life, in two years.
The band’s early trajectory was a steep and speedy one as they quickly established themselves as one of the country’s most exciting and pulverising new bands. Major festival slots stacked up at places such as Glastonbury, SXSW, Reading and Leeds, and British Summertime with the Strokes. As did the tours across the US with METZ, traversing Europe with Fat White Family and Death Grips. They garnered support from BBC 6 Music, DIY, MOJO, NME and more.
However, when the ascent to the stratosphere is moving at such a speed, there’s a risk of burning out and imploding, and the band came close to this. Then the drummer left and they questioned the future of the group. Frontman Kristian Bell explains, “We were disheartened by the whole thing. All the work that goes into getting a band off its feet and into the public felt like something we’d have to try all over again.”
After a few years away Kristian Bell, bassist Dan Rumsey and guitarist Mark Breed regrouped and started demoing again and came back from the brink of collapse. “We've come back feeling re-energised and rejuvenated,” Kristian says. “For a period I was losing interest. We were going through the motions but now things feel right again.”
