WITCHES: Big River b/w Young Ones: 7”

Moody, alt country influenced indie rock. The lyrics are introspective, but don’t fall victim to wankery. The female-fronted vocals strongly remind me of Cat Power—maybe by a bit too much, though. I feel like I even recognized a couple similar riffs as well. Despite that, the disc didn’t wear out its welcome, and I’d love to see what they come up with in the future, especially if they ditch any overly familiar elements.
