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 songs over the past few years, Witching Hour finally took full form over the course of 2019. As she nurtured her beat-driven 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’, her second single 'Colourblind' dropped in May 2020, accompanied by a lyric video by Emerson Zandegu. With more singles and an EP on the way, prepare to be (sorry, the pun is irresistible): spellbound.

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

Hypnotising, multi-layered, cotton-candy vibes.

This one starts off on a minimal vibe but before long it all gets swept up with Claire's incantations and trinket box of sounds.
