They’re loud and they’re brooding and they make you wanna sway and rock.
WTCHS are set to release a new five track EP called It’s Not A Cross, It’s A Curse! this April 4th. In anticipation for their release date, the band has released their “first ever music video” for “Over Kilmer” off the album.
The song has a haunting sound. With distant shouting vocals and a lashing, energetic beat, WTCHS make you feel a lot at once with “Over Kilmer”. The album was produced by the band alongside Adam Sturgeon.
Dean Tzenos a member of Toronto band Odonis Odonis directed the video for WTCHS. The strange, ominous video stars mannequins playing the main roles. The howling music is broody with a driving beat. The track “Over Kilmer” paired with red and black snuff scenes of slowly moving mannequin limbs makes for an almost NSFW video.
WTCHS are quickly becoming one of Hamilton’s most successful and influential bands. Having recently sealed a deal with Hamilton’s Sonic Unyon Records, It’s Not A Cross, It’s A Curse will be released under recording labels Sonic Unyon, Out of Sound and PERDU.
According to the upcoming shows listed on their bandcamp site, you can catch WTCHS at This Ain’t Hollywood this May 4th.
