26/01/2017 – LA Witch-Brain

L.A. Witch ooze cool. As corny as that sounds it’s true. Before even hearing their music, they look like girls you would want to hang out with. Their thrift stool vibes and ‘take no prisoners attitude’ is enough to tell you that they mean business. And then you hear them…. The world starts to skew horizontally, everything goes into slow motion and you are captivated. The elegant ragged beauty of their songs belies their collective power at melody and hooks.



Latest single Brain sounds like Donita Sparks and Wanda Jackson rolled into one covering the Velvet Underground at the Brown Derby on a Thursday night. But their music is much larger in scope. L.A. Witch conquer up the feeling of early evening sound checks, hazy sunlight drifting through dusty windows, a drink in the sun after finishing work, an stolen laugh as you cycle past a couple, catching the eye of someone special in a crowded room, the threat of violence during a incendiary gig, and all of it being captured in beautiful Kodachrome.



Brain appears in L.A. Witch’s debut album, which has all the hallmarks of being the must have slow burning psych album of the year.
