Compositions of this genre are usually based on a «lazy» beat, the wall of sound with vintage drum machines and stringy otherworldly vocals. Often musicians prefer unreadable names such as oOoOO, Gr†ll Gr†ll, H∆UNT3D HOUS3, ///▲▲▲\\\ , †‡†. The most notable representatives of this style are Salem, White Ring, Modern Witch, Balam Acab and oOoOO. Musicians usually prefer to be mysterious — to hide faces and real names. 

The most important role in the popularization of this style was played by music blogosphere. The blogosphere created the exterior style of witch house – crazy collaging, poor quality pictures, dark colors and hints of occult symbolism. The majority of authoritative music critics suppose that witch house is a seasonal fashion with a great publicity.
