Bio

The clock has struck midnight, and magic is in the air. It's time to step into the Witching Hour.

Witching Hour (a.k.a. Claire Quartz) makes magical pop music. Her distinct candy goth vision maintains a delicate balance between light and dark, and exudes a playful moodiness that keeps you on your toes. She’ll draw you in with her cheeky lyrics and glittering synths, then break you with her gut punching depictions of love, loss, and grief. Sweetly devastating and encouragingly cathartic, Witching Hour takes you on a swirling odyssey of self love and emotional exploration, navigating a world filled with pure joy and vicious heartbreak. These pulsing, intimate glimpses into her life are injected with juicy bass lines, infectious hooks, and rich textural flourishes.

After growing a colourful collection of beat-driven emopop tracks, Witching Hour is ready to stun audiences with a blast of her sonic pixie dust. As she nurtured her mystical music baby from her inner eastern Melbourne bedroom, it blossomed into a surreal hybrid of influences ranging from Billie Eilish to Paramore. You won’t know what to expect – and that’s just how she likes it. Following up her debut ‘The Spell’ and her second single ‘Colourblind‘, her new single 'Hell Hath No Fury Like' dropped on April 22nd, with a music video by Mickey Mason. With more singles and an EP on the way, prepare to be spellbound.

I reckon this feels like Claire's strongest vocal performance yet. Makes sense that it's been conjured on this new one that's got bite and brood.

everything's in theme on this one from witching hour. there's creepy tip toe elements, flashes of light in the forest, screeches and delayed voices and it's all really compelling.

there's sweetness playing off against a creepier pop sound and it's working.
