Emerging artist of the week: L.A. Witch
Often compared to early Gun Club, The Black Angels and Brian Jonestown Massacre, L.A. WITCH are Los Angeles natives Irita Pai (bass), Sade Sanchez (singer/guitarist), and Ellie English (drums). The band formed after Irita and Sade met on a blind jam date after being introduced by a mutual friend. L.A. WITCH released their first self-titled EP digitally via Manimal Vinyl in 2014 and have since been touring extensively, including dates in Mexico, Beach Goth 3, CMJ, Burgerama, and Desert Daze.
L.A. WITCH have just released the first single, “Kill My Baby Tonight“ from their upcoming full length LP in support of their current spring tour which includes dates at Desert Daze, Levitation, and Levitation Vancouver (both presented by Austin Psych Fest). The track also features the first appearance of their new drummer Ellie English.
“L.A. WITCH sport a dark bluesy sound that recalls a pitch-black Widowspeak or, yes, BRMC or J-A-U-know-what. But the band’s music is also heavy on smoky attitude which you 100% need with this kind of thing.” – Brooklyn Vegan
