Their music is a blend of pop, rock, chiptune, and various electronic genres. Many of their lyrics are set in a science fiction reality and involve themes of adventure and romance.

To date, Crunk Witch has released three full length albums. Their latest release, Heartbeats in Hyperspace (2014), sold over 2,500 copies in it's first week.

If Witch Hair told you they spent the Winter of 16/17 recording their EP in a freezing cold five story warehouse that may or may not have been a former Uranium processing facility or ballistics lab throughout WWII you might get an idea as to why they are so excited to get out and perform this Spring and Summer. They’ve crafted their songs on tales of motorcycle gangs, psychedelic breaks with reality, and have veered into putting a voice to their political views by hosting large benefits for Planned Parenthood and with songs like “You Are Not A Surface” and “Sanctuary City”. An atypical trio, each person sings and writes their own songs since the addition of Tom Connolly (Drums/Vocals) in November 2016. His presence solidified a sound that is at times psych heavy and droning while managing to maintain it’s melodic roots with Joe Russo (Guitar/Vocals) and Ashley Kenney (Bass/Vocals) singing haunting harmonies to Connolly’s deep baritone.
