Witching Waves “Crystal Cafe”

While still maintaining space in their own home studio, Witching Waves sophomore effort Crystal Cafe finds them a little more polished and angular than their previous effort (2015’s Fear of Falling down). As with the former album the band finds themselves in a nervy post-punk spiral, with songs that convey a sense of loss, inner claustrophobia and the general malaise of paranoia of big city modern life.

The strong vocal interplay between Emma and Ed and the minimalist precision of the playing take an album that could feel very oppressive and makes it quite enjoyable. Album is out now on HHBTM Records in the US.
