Founded in Maine by husband and wife duo Brandon Mile and Hannah Collen, Crunk Witch sounds like a paperback fantasy novel come to life. But instead of a quest to save a kingdom or a princess, their journey is to make the fairest beats of them all. With whimsical bass drops and virtuosic keyboard riffs, Crunk Witch’s sorcery comes in the form of interesting and unique dance music, a heavy feat. Their music video for “Moonbase Blues” is a deliberately campy homage to the sci-fi films of yesterday, but the song is almost completely future tense, while still winking at the forefathers of ‘80s synthpop. With Dawn of the Phoenix, Rivers Want, Pink Leche.
