This duo from Leeds appear to have it all, the looks, the artistic sensibilities (the limited & unique vinyl presses of their ‘Little Book Of Hate EP’ is quite stunning), support from Radio 1s Huw Stephens, and a vague air of gothic mystery about them; in short they’re a marketing wet dream.

Thankfully they have the musical prowess to back all of this up. With vocals that would give PJ Harvey the chills they command your attention with their neo-noir melodies reminiscent of Howling Bells & Natasha Khan, underlaid by a brooding intensity that is sure to propel The Witch Hunt into the mainstream consciousness.
