In many ways "Witching Sticks" by Dems is beautifully reminiscent of Radiohead but adorned with a more cinematic flair that makes for one dramatic climax.

The video and the track both possess an eerie nature to them that has a fascinating, unexplainable lure to it bordering between creepy and enchanting. It's during the climax that the track springs to life with heavily distorted guitars and vocals that act more as an instrument than a tool to deliver a message. Dem's love for noise, jungle, guitar music, and electronica is all thrown together in this melting pot to create quite an intriguing listening experience.
