Alt Citizen writes that “L.A. Witch subvert the solitary mythos of the traditional motorcycle narrative on their latest single, ‘Motorcycle Boy,’ into a tragic expression of devotion to the restless outcasts compelled to practice the thundering art of rebellion.” The site has a great feature on the video for the new song, noting that “L.A. Witch have never been a band to take the easy route when putting their perspective on the challenges of personal or romantic relationships. This track is no different. Deftly shifting focus away from the traditional moto-antihero’s saga, L.A. Witch tell a new story within the mythos of motorcycle culture, the story of the wives and mothers and children left behind to watch burning taillights recede into the distance and the lingering uncertainty that hangs like the metallic smell of exhaust fumes long after the bike has disappeared from view.” Read the whole thing, and see the sweet video, here.
Play With Fire, the album from whence “Motorcycle Boy” has been plucked, is at radio now and full of rippers. Spin it now.
