Melbourne band Witch Hats are back with their third album Deliverance. It’s a damn good encapsulation of the evolution they’ve shown across their records to date. Plenty of dark lurching rock ‘n’ roll with howling dirges and claustrophobic angst. The bass on Deliverance is deep and heavy, anchoring the songs as they stagger off into Stooges proto-punk, and nihilistic post-punk. The key is the melodies that still burn a hole in the gothic, swampy vibe. Here’s the clip for the excellent title track.
Deliverance is out on July 1st via Behind The Beats Records.
