Born from the grit and grime of the Los Angeles underground, Californian rockers L.A. Witch have dropped a new video for their latest single, “Motorcycle Boy.” The track is taken from the group’s sophomore record, Play With Fire, out now through Suicide Squeeze.
“Motorcycle Boy” is a sultry love song inspired by the bad boy rogues of classic cinema. The track’s music video, directed by Amber Navarro, captures the song’s feisty energy through a black-and-white, visual aesthetic and a decidedly old Hollywood feel.
On their latest single and its accompanying music video, guitarist/vocalist Sade Sanchez comments:
“The song is inspired by Moto Boys like Mickey Rourke, Marlon Brando, and Steve McQueen, so of course, we took a lot of inspiration from our favorite biker movies like The Wild One, Rumble Fish, On Any Sunday, Easy Rider, Hells Angeles ‘69 and The Girl on a Motorcycle.
“I had worked with (director) Ambar Navarro and Max on another project and loved their other work, so we wanted to work with them on this. They definitely did their homework and came up with a cool storyline. I got to feature my bike that I’d been rebuilding during the pandemic. It was nice to shoot a video where you get to do two of your favorite things: riding motorcycles and play the guitar.”
