L.A. Witch on Wednesday 3rd June 2020
Now Wave & Manchester Psych Fest present:
Moody Los Angeles trio with a gothy, punk-influenced edge, marked by frontwoman Sade Sanchez's atmospheric guitar playing.
Formed by Sanchez in 2013, L.A. Witch also features bassist Irita Pai and drummer Ellie English. Raised in the Valley on the edge of North Hollywood, Sanchez first began playing guitar at age 15. She quickly discovered punk rock, especially the horror-infused style of bands like the Misfits, the Cramps, and Dead Moon, as well as alt-rock outfits like Gun Club, the Jesus and the Mary Chain, and Spacemen 3. It was during this period that she met English and the two began playing together, even winning a battle of the bands as a duo at Burbank High where English was a student. After high school, the duo went their separate ways, with Sanchez forming the noise-rock outfit Silver Drones with bassist Pai. However, Sanchez eventually reconnected with English and by 2015 Silver Drones had morphed into the trio L.A. Witch. That same year they hit the road, touring almost non-stop for the next three years and picking up well-earned comparisons to many of their idols. In 2017, they issued their independent self-titled debut, which further earned the band buzz for their moody rock sound. An EP, Octubre, arrived in 2019.
