The Wytches - All Your Happy Life

Screen Shot 2016-06-29 at 12.45.06

The Wytches announce details of the release of their second album, 'All Your Happy Life', on Friday 30th September via Heavenly Recordings.

We have now SOLD OUT of signed pre-orders. Orders of this record are now on limited coloured vinyl.

Recorded by Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds / Grinderman) in Chapel Studios in Lincolnshire and then Toe Rag in East London with Luke Oldfield, and mixed by Sclavunos and Mikey Young.

The Wytches second album All Your Happy Life draws on a lifetime’s worth of new experiences shoehorned into two whirlwind years since their acclaimed debut album Annabel Dream Reader. There’s no difficult second album syndrome here. This black-hearted set is a combination of heavy comedown psychedelia and bilious and brilliant baroque ‘n’ roll. It’s portentous and scathing. Scabrous and bold. Utterly nihilistic.

Influences and inspiration is drawn from unexpected places – reading Tolstoy’s stories of dysfunctional relationships on the tour bus, digging the warm Hammond-and-acoustic tones of Elliot Smith, loads of underground metal band – but mainly it is informed by observing small town English life with new eyes, having traversed the planet on that first wave of success that followed their 2014 debut. It’s not so much the sound of the calm after the storm, but the howling vortex that follows in its wake.

All Your Happy Life marks a creative leap for The Wytches. Some might say it is the sound of a band finding their place in the world but really it is about world being allowed to enter the sphere of The Wytches - on their terms.

Reviews

“While ‘Annabel Dream Reader’ flipped constantly from highs to lows, ‘All Your Happy Life’ perfects the notion of living under a black cloud throughout. Gloomy, grey but definitely not dull, The Wytches have cast another stellar spell.”
DIY Magazine ★★★★

“From the building ‘Ghost House’ to the stand out lead track ‘C-side,’ this The Wytches’ most potent spell yet.”
Upset Magazine ★★★

“All Your Happy Life’ is a wonderfully fully-formed second effort from The Wytches: from start to finish the sound doesn’t compromise its jagged raw edge, while still finding room to develop.”
Dork Magazine ★★★★
