First Listen: L.A Witch Take The Wheel on ‘Drive Your Car’

Cali trio L.A. Witch (they’re not actual practicing witches unless that’s a double-bluff) are taking the wheel today as we premiere their latest offering ‘Drive Your Car’. The track, with its reverb soaked ominous vibes, comes ahead of their debut self-titled album – release on Sept 8th via Suicide Squeeze Records.

In the words of L.A Witch vocalist Sade Sanchez:

‘Drive Your Car’ was written about power and being in control. I borrowed my ex boyfriend’s Cadillac when he was out of town during one Christmas a few years ago. I drove it recklessly, like a mad man. I drove Vincent Gallo’s Tesla through Korea Town one night with him in passenger seat. I felt liberated and I don’t know why. To be behind the wheel of a car, which could be a man’s most prized possession, is a sense of power. There is constant repetition throughout the song to give the sense of driving.
