Natasha Khan and Dan Carey (the producer behind the instant Speedy Wunderground label, which records 7-inch singles in a single day) first worked together on Iranian folk song ‘The Bride’ in 2013. Seemingly it’s inspired them to trawl record store rack for strange 70s psych and folk from places like Morocco, Thailand, Iran and the less exotic USA.

They collected 6 tracks to reinterpret, live in a studio with London band Toy, and now, calling themselves SEXWITCH (good name), this new creative project will release their album on Echo/BMG on 25 September 2015.

Here’s a taste of it – lead track ‘Helelyos’.
