Crystal Ball is an atmospheric, softly-sang piece of alt rock that looks back to Kiss Me-era Cure and Wham for inspiration. Haunting compositions play at the back of the single, imbuing the single with a unique flair that will stick with listeners long after the work ceases. Witt’s dreamy vocals provide further complexity to the guitar / synth dynamics backing them; a bit of chiptune and 1980s new wave bubbles up at around the 2:15 mark. Crystal Ball’s numerous twists and turns will keep fans invigorated and eagerly devouring each note. Here’s to hoping we hear more from Witt in the months and years to come.
