The Wytches blast back with new single "Cowboy"

The Wytches are back with their hypnotising new single "Cowboy" - their first release in nearly three years.

"Cowboy" is the first new track from The Wytches as a trio, and follows on from their 2017 standalone single "Double World".

The new single marks the start of a new chapter for The Wytches, after their drummer left the band last year. Vocalist Kristian Bell explains, "We were disheartened by the whole thing. All the work that goes into getting a band off its feet and into the public felt like something we’d have to try all over again."

He adds, "We've come back feeling re-energised and rejuvenated. For a period I was losing interest. We were going through the motions but now things feel right again."

Discussing the new single, which they recorded with Luke Oldfield at Tile House Studios, Bell explains, "It's a song about attempting to return to a better state of mind. "Cowboy" was a holding place title as it seemed like a riff that a cowboy would enjoy. It had four or five different verses and structures before the final recorded version and by then the name had stuck."

The trio are yet to follow up their 2016 second album All Your Happy Life.

The Wytches' "Cowboy" single is out now on their own Cable Code Records.
