Listen: The Wytches’ new single “Wire Frame Mattress”

on February 12, 2014, 5:20pm

Though they’re based in the UK, The Wytches’ brand of wily rock seems pulled from Seattle’s gruff grunge scene and SoCal’s gnarly surf-rock past.

Take one listen to “Wire Frame Mattress”, the Brighton trio’s latest single, and you’re immediately met with a fog of brooding, crunchy noise and snarling vocals à la Billy Corgan & Co. As the track hits the 2:00 mark, however, The Wytches seamlessly switch gears, whipping up a sizzling, guitar-led assault not unlike the classic beachside scorchers found in Dick Dale’s “Misirlou” and The Atlantics’ “Bombora”. Check it out below.

“Wire Frame Mattress” is off The Wytches’ debut album, due out on Partisan later this year.
