Witching Waves – Persistence
Third album from London post punk trio Witching Waves! Recorded live to tape over 2 days at Sound Savers, this new record sounds authentic, alive, and arguably their most confident album to date.

The London trio Witching Waves released their first cassette, First Tape, in 2013. Drummer/vocalist Emma Wigham, bassist Ed Shellard, and guitarist/vocalist Mark Jasper (who also helps runs Sound Savers recording studio) concocted a loud, energetic indie rock sound driven by fierce guitars and Wigham’s enthusiastic bashing. The group next released a split tape of covers with fellow Londoners As Ondas, then in late 2014 delivered their first album for the Soft Power label. Titled Fear of Falling Down, the record showed a heavy Vaselines influence and was produced by Jasper at Sound Savers. The group spent the next year playing shows and recording, releasing only a split cassette EP with the band Rattle late in 2015. Meanwhile, U.S. label Happy Happy Birthday to Me picked up Witching Waves, and their next album was a co-release between them and Soft Power. Recorded again by Jasper, the tougher-sounding Crystal Cafe was released in early 2016. ~ Tim Sendra, Rovi
