We first posted about L.A. Witch back in March last year and now the threesome have signed to Suicide Squeeze Records for the release of their eponymous debut album.

Reverb-drenched guitar jangle and sultry vocals conjure the analogue sound of a collector’s prized 45 from some short-lived footnote cult band. The melodies forgo the bubblegum pop for a druggy haze that straddles the line between seedy glory and ominous balladry.

Check out Untitled from the record below.


L.A. Witch

The music of L.A. WITCH is raw and bloody, echoing of bad decisions through a thick, smoky haze of reverb.

Veering between moody post-punk and blues-punk ballads, new single Drive Your Car is an exploration far beyond 2014’s fuzzed-out, lo-fi Get Lost. Explosive drumming and heavy basslines set the mood for reverb-drenched spaced-out guitar, and vocals reminiscent of a darker, more rebellious Mazzy Star.

Often compared to early Gun Club, The Black Angels, and Brian Jonestown Massacre their influences stretch into the sounds of ‘60s garage musicians like The Pleasure Seekers and Sonics while other touch points can be found with Dead Moon and The Breeders.
