LA Witch – LA Witch

Double, Double, Echo and Reverb:

All-female garage-punk trio LA Witch hark back to the gloomy and reverb-drenched sound of the 60s US underground: every track on their self-titled debut borrows shamelessly from the Stooges and the Velvets, but they produce a glorious racket.

It’s pretty much impossible to make out the lyrics underneath all that echo and feedback, but song titles like Kill My Baby Tonight, You Love Nothing and Get Lost suggest an authentically decadent and rebellious attitude which is refreshing in the modern, clean-cut Taylor Swift-dominated pop landscape.

Plus, hidden beneath all that echo and feedback are some very sweet melodies. They deserve to become cult favourites amongst the coolest kids.
