'Witches Brew' is the fifth single to be taken from Katie Brien aka Katy B’s debut album “On A Mission” and although taking five singles from an album could be risky for a new artist she has every right to considering the success of the album which entered at Number 1 in the UK Album Charts and recently was nominated for the Barclaycard Mercury Prize.
Despite containing an incredibly catchy chorus and clearly demonstrating Katy’s vocal talent, “Witches Brew” will never be as successful as “Katy On A Mission” and should have been kept as an album track rather than being released as a single as it appears to blend in with the rest of the album. Undoubtedly it will be played in clubs and pubs across the UK for weeks on end, but it will not have people racing to the dance floor as it seems to lack that Katy “spark”. However you will have the “oh oh oooh’s” stuck in your head for the rest of the night.
