When you don’t feel like you are the only person in the room, when no other person can be seen, when you feel invisible eyes burning holes into your soul, when the hair on the back of your neck warns you of some unseen presence – this playlist will make you embrace the danger, the uncertainty and most of all the numbness after death… the fall into the great abyss…
This is Witch house – an electronic occult themed music genre that appeared in the last four years. It is mostly recognizable by the slowed down tempos, skipped beats, distorted vocals, dark ambient sounds and band names riddled with unicode symbols making them impossible to search for. One of the most attractive attributes of this genre is the visual imagery associated with it. Many album covers have been dedicated to old cult horror movies and desolate landscapes that echoes the sound.
This is a genre that revels in the haunt in both its sound and aesthetics. Here are a few of our favourite witch house tracks ranging from the pioneering bands like Salem to the lesser known artists like Bad America.
