Witterquick they call themselves. Guess you gotta love these guys from Exeter! They have a sound definitely identifiable, breathing and soothing for your ears and soul. This melodic blend of pop/rock leaves you with something familiar to keep singing along during the day.

Who Is Who
WITTERQUICK began in 2014 in the back bedroom of a house in the South West of England, wanting to be the change they all desired from the music of today, “We want something real. We want something that means something.” said Will about the band’s aims, “A lot of music today is lacking that…‘thing’, that little spark, that pulls us into the music we love. We want every song we write to be our favourite song, and so far we’re nailing it.”
WITTERQUICK launched that unique blend of rock-pop into the public eye in March 2015 by releasing an entirely self-made dark, yet upbeat, ‘The Otherside’ to rave reviews, and featured in the iTunes rock charts. “…We really couldn’t believe the response the track had, we had people messaging us from Scotland, Germany, America, all over the place, it was crazy.” bassist and co-writer Ollie recalls.
‘Soldiers’, the first single from the EP, was released on October 30th during a SOLD OUT UK tour with Nothing But Thieves (10-11/2015). “We put out ‘Soldiers’ while on the road, and we were blown away with the response from fans” recalls Ollie “every night more and more people were singing along, it was incredible.”
