SINGLE OF THE WEEK - RAE 'Never Meant To Start A Witch Hunt'
'Never Meant To Start A Witch Hunt' is the debut single from the new rebellious Leeds based quartet. Formerly known as The 0rmstons, RAE's debut single is full of chaotic energy. It has an immediate groove that wouldn't be out of place on the soundtrack to a Harley Quinn movie. An anthemic chorus surrounded by a stomping guitar riff leads the listener to believe that RAE are serious contenders and ones to watch. ****
The single is released on June 12th worldwide on all major streaming platforms and can be pre-saved here https://ditto.fm/never-meant-to-start-a-witch-hunt
