Manchester’s Witch Fever formed four years ago after meeting through mutual friends, and in June, they announced they had signed to Sony’s Music For Nations. Their new single “In The Resurrect” was written and recorded entirely online during lockdown. Like so many others, they were all separate, resulting in a slightly more experimental sound.
Vocalist Amy expands on the impact of lockdown on this track:
“We recorded our parts, and Annabelle did a sick job of mixing it together to make the whole song. Had we written it together in the practice room like we usually do, it probably wouldn’t be the same song!”
“It doesn’t have a specific narrative in a traditional sense. But the overarching theme and inspiration of the song comes from rejecting beauty ideals, in particular of Western societal definitions of ‘feminine’ and ‘masculine’. For me, it’s about owning my own femininity and being free to express that however it chooses to on any given day. It’s about being totally true to yourself and not allowing outside opinions to bend you at their will or stifle your expression.”
