Witches Of London - Camden Gothic
This creepy album of gothic delight is full to the brim with haunting vocals and synthonic melodies, it's enough to make your skin crawl. With punk riffs and romantic goth undertones, this group have a wide array of genres they've used to create something a little new.
The band consist of five members: a vocalist, synth/keyboard, guitar, drums and bass. They currently have a music video out for their songs Manifesto and Welcome To The Night where you can only see the singers face. I'm under the impression that the masks are a part of Witches of London's act and I'm keen to know if each of them has a meaning or not.
Their album is full with original songs and each track differs to the last. It gives you the opportunity to taste everything the band has to offer as no song is the same. An exception to their own songs though is White Rabbit, a cover which was done originally by Jefferson Airplane. However, this version holds true to the bands romantic goth nature giving it a new spin and lease of life.
The song Autumn is here completely took me by surprise however, this was due to the screams in the song. I may well have missed subtle screams in previous songs but these ones were loud. It sounded to me as though they needed a little more work to be a bit clearer and maybe not as harsh but this didn't mean that they were awful.
I'm excited to see more from this band and I hope they play some live shows soon as I think it could be a very interesting night!
