“We want something real. We want something that means something.”
Rock newcomers WITTERQUICK are establishing their new blood status following their popular self-release of singles ‘Soldiers’ and ‘Fade Out’, and a SOLD OUT UK tour with fellow rockers Nothing But Thieves.
Their debut EP ‘Beneath the Spinning Lights‘ is out June 17th on LAB Records.
WITTERQUICK began in 2014 in the back bedroom of a house in the South West of England, wanting to be the change they all desired from the music of today, “We want something real. We want something that means something.” said Will about the band’s aims, “A lot of music today is lacking that…‘thing’, that little spark, that pulls us into the music we love. We want every song we write to be our favourite song, and so far we’re nailing it.”
WITTERQUICK launched that unique blend of rock-pop into the public eye in March 2015 by releasing an entirely self-made dark, yet upbeat, ‘The Otherside’ to rave reviews, clocking over 10,000 views in its first month (currently over 35,000 January 2016) and also featuring in the iTunes rock charts. “…We really couldn’t believe the response the track had, we had people messaging us from Scotland, Germany, America, all over the place, it was crazy.” bassist and co-writer Ollie recalls.
WITTERQUICK’s sound combines the intensity of punk-rock, and the feel of the 70’s and 80’s stadium greats, with the melody of a pop band.
“We’re not modelling ourselves on anyone, we don’t want to be like anyone else, if you aren’t doing your own thing, what’s the point?” – Ollie
Their debut EP ‘Beneath the Spinning Lights’ will be released on June 17th on LAB Records.
