Witchcraft is the first new music from Minneapolis synth-darlings since 2017's "Ouija", and the first from their new forthcoming full-length record due in 2019. Sonically, the band shimmer and are bigger than ever before with the help of engineer/producer Andy Thompson (Dessa, jeremy messersmith, Belle and Sebastian). This new track finds the band bridging familiar spaces from 80's synths to 50's crooners creating a distinctly nostalgic feel for a place and time you feel you know intimately, but never really existed. It's Twin Peaks in Cathedral Hill and Boris Karloff at the Under-The-Sea prom of your dreams, because "Darling, your love is like witchcraft."
"My parents played a lot of oldies in the house as I was growing up. Some of my earliest musical memories were of hearing Roy Orbison, Everly Brothers, and Buddy Holly blasting out of the living room speakers. The melodies and emotion of those songs captivated me instantly. I was transfixed. As a teenager, I fell in love with the dark, synth-heavy sounds of The Cure and New Order. Since then, I have been frequently drawn back to the 1950's and 80's as a source of musical inspiration. "Witchcraft" is Graveyard Club's attempt to fuse those two worlds together."
