This Is the fourth freakverb gig as part of a pre indietracks gig, this time it’s at the swan in ipswich, the only alternative and it’s a free gig
Witching Waves (London)
Witching Waves have spent the year, amongst other things, releasing their excellent, sophomore album, Crystal Café, touring the US, including playing NYC Popfest, and lining up for this summer’s Indietracks.
Their ability to combine the breathless, sugar-rush guitar assault of the likes of Joanna Gruesome and Sonic Youth, with underlying ‘sweetly fractured harmonies’ (Drowned in Sound) is reminiscent of the songwriting dynamism of much-loved bands, such as Veronica Falls, Bearsuit & The Vaselines. However, Witching Waves are very much their own beast, with their very own aggressive, contemporary strain of noise pop, and a must-see!
” right at the end of 2014 they’ve produced one of its best debut LPs. Fear of Falling Down takes its cue from garage rock, and is driven on by grubby riffs and a breathless sense of urgency… capturing the euphoria of classic Sixties pop” (8/10 Drowned in Sound).
“I remember this lot, I liked their earlier ‘Fear of Falling Down’ LP which sold out in roughly the time it would take you to eat a super noodle. ... How do guitars become this nasty?” Witching Waves have made another fine record of skewed guitar melodies and propulsive noise pop. (Norman records 8/10)

Ipswich indie five-piece fronted by James Severy and featuring members of Broken Shapes and (((Oh Dear. The band have recently recorded a session for BBC Suffolk and plan to record their debut album in 2016 and they’re playing for freakverbration gig for the second time.
