L.A. Witch is a three-piece group from you can imagine where, and they are damned bewitching and cool. They evoke a lovely dark atmosphere, pretty far away from the sun-soaked Los Angeles most of us imagine. Sade Sanchez’s languid voice is joined by her sexy guitar riffs, Irita Pai’s bass line magically blends with the heavy reverb, and Ellie English’s drumming is essential and hypnotic. Their slowcore garage/psych/surf-rock is a hazy nightmare, a witchy voice that invites you to get lost in the desert, a moonlight drive to nowhere. Jump in their car and enjoy the ride, dear dreamers!
Can you recall the moment you all realized that you could really make music together and be this band?
IRITA: The first time that we all jammed together. It felt really natural, like something we were meant to be doing.
The deep reverb that you are using is very characteristic. How did it become such an integral part of your sound?
SADE: When I first started playing electric guitar as a teen I had a small amp that came with some built in effects. One of them was reverb and another was distortion. I fell in love with the sounds of the two effects and quickly discovered I could accentuate my tone and (hide my shitty playing lol) with not only the guitar but with different effects.
What’s your zodiac sign? Do you believe in astrology?
Any advice on how to quit a toxic relationship when you’re still in love?
IRITA: I’m terrible when I’m in love, I’ll put up with a lot. I’m probably the worst person to give advice on this one!
If you ask a fortune teller about your upcoming music, what would she said?
IRITA: Will we be able to tour in 2020? Hopefully her answer is yes. But only if it’s safe.
Do you like playing in Italy?
SADE: YES! I love italy. I been trying to learn to speak italian for the past year. Its one of my favorite cultures. Very similar to Mexican in some ways. Maybe thats why I like it so much?
