In August this year (2nd & 3rd) the new Eclectica Project will come to Manchester’s Kraak Gallery to showcase female talent, but before that we get a taste of what’s to come with an exciting live music event coming up on Wednesday 9th April at the Castle Hotel. The night will be headlined by Delooze who heads north from London and The Witch Hunt who have a shorter trip west from Leeds. Joining them on the bill are special guests Factory Acts and Cherie Bebe.

London’s DeLooze blends dramatic, electronic post-punk, laced with gothic elements and classical instrumentation, which weave a dark yet delicate soundscape. Likened to Siouxsie Sioux, Kate Bush, PJ Harvey and Zola Jesus, the vocals are captivating and take us on a journey to a world that is both sexy and earthy, pure, yet dark. An enchanted world. The band are embarking upon their UK tour to promote the release of their debut album ‘Glass Army‘ which is due out just a few days after this show, on Monday 14 April.

The Witch Hunt are a project by Leeds-based pairing Louisa Osborn and Chris Mulligan; the group’s grimy, sludgy output has been impressing the local music scene for the last few years. Essentially a garage blues two piece, there are shades of The Cramps here in the way that the band add a raw sense of menace to their disturbed riffs. The Witch Hunt sound like The Kills when they really were just two artists locked in a room to engage their emotional trauma with guitars and a drum machine. All stomping blues riffs and sneering vocals.

With special guests including local support Factory Acts and burlesque act Cherie Bebe, and MCd by the delectable Zoe Iqbal this is an exclusive preview show to promote the 2-day Eclectica event.
