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’, her second single ‘Colourblind‘, and her third offering 'Hell Hath No Fury Like', her latest single 'Queen Of Wands' dropped on June 24th after premiering on triple j Unearthed. With her 7-track debut EP 'Book Of Shadows' to follow on July 30th, prepare to be spellbound.

This song is rippling with energy and chaos. It's not a perfectly polished record and the mix is a bit chaotic but that just goes to show how magnetic Claire's performance is here.

A purr turns into a roar with Witching Hour's latest track. It's alive and coursing with a bit of dark pop-punk voodoo.
