Sydney's Dead Witch have finally dropped their debut eponymous EP and it's an absolute alt-country psych-fuelled belter.
The four-track independent release is a love letter to the genres that inspire Dead Witch and their much-loved and unforgettable fuzz-rock sound that’s been gracing Sydney stages this past year.

The feature single La Niña is a gripping, alt-country song with just the right amount of psych, written in the aftermath of the 2019 bushfires – “There was this weird phenomenon that happened that year. Once the collective grief had peaked, it felt like everyone just started talking about the wet summer that was coming, while there were so many people still camping on their burnt-out properties waiting for the water to be connected” – says Jaimee Taylor-Nielsen, lead singer.
La Niña sits amongst the band’s debut single 15 Dennies and follow up Starfucker, both of which have received massive support from triple j, triple j Unearthed, FBi Radio and 2SER and clocking over 40K and 30K Spotify streams, respectively. Plus Falling In Line, a 7-minute undulating instrumental that’s a must-see live.
The Dead Witch EP was recorded at Stranded Studios with Bowen Shakallis, mixed by Wade Keighran (Wolf & Cub, Hockey Dad) and mastered by Nick Franklin (Polish Club, The Buoys, Straight Arrows).
To celebrate the release, Dead Wi†ch are hitting the road for a run of east coast shows, kicking off Friday November 18 at Waywards Newtown – bringing the raucous and glittering Dead Witch live experience with them, and joined by Magic Machine, Liquid Zoo and Itchy & The Nits.
