Witch Egg – “Greener Pools”
Oh Sees (or Osees, if you prefer) are currently in the middle of a rollout for Panther Rotate, a remix album of their 2020 LP, Protean Threat, which came out in September. Naturally, bandleader John Dwyer has another project going on.
A couple days ago, he revealed a new band called Witch Egg — made up of himself, Nick Murray, Brad Caulkins, Greg Coates, and Tom Dolas — and announced that their self-titled debut album will be out in January. Dwyer describes the project as “a burner designed optimally for your eco-pod sound system.”
Our first taste of the new band is “Greener Pools,” which you can check out below.
Here’s the Dwyer-written bio for the new group:
Alien sound waves have been bouncing off the side of our ship.
We’ve managed to capture some of them on plastic.
They appear suddenly out of the vacuum.
Projected by planets
Beamed through stars
Reflected off debris
Hanging in space like dust motes
Memories of planetary habitation.
