Netflix I do not agree brought us back to our own high school days – teenage anxiety, afternoons in custody, acne in places we didn't know we could get, mysterious boys interested in obscure bands, and, spoiler alert, learning how to use our superpowers (OK, the last one may not be true).
In the first episode of the series, Stanley uses his favorite band Bloodwitch to invite the main character Sydney to listen to their record in his basement (and come up). This moment seems to open Sydney's eyes to Stanley's potential as a love interest, but it also made us google "Bloodwitch" to find out if they were a real band. It turns out that she – somehow.
Bloodwitch, which has a much more ethereal folk rock feel than the heavy metal name suggests, was specifically designed to make music for the show, but they actually put together a full-length album with some awesome songs, that you've never heard on the show. The band included 16-year-old musician Tatyana Richaud, whose mother also worked as an editor on the show, and Blur's guitarist and songwriter Graham Coxon. Coxon, who also composed the music for Netflix The end of the world, wrote the music and lyrics, with both members tackling the vocals. You can try Bloodwitch on Apple Music, Amazon Music, and Spotify if you like what you hear.
A second season of the graphic novels-based series has not yet been announced by Netflix, but the cliffhanger ending definitely makes us believe that a lot more history needs to be told and more music needs to be made. We can only hope that Bloodwitch will bring the band back together for a second album to complement the next step on Syd's journey!
