L.A. Witch Tells New Noise About Making Cover Songs Unique

L.A. Witch’s Sade Sanchez recently told New Noise about the band’s new Gun Club cover, “Ghost On The Highway.” According to Sanchez, “It’s challenging to do a cover and make it your own thing. You wanna do the original justice, you know? We approached the song in so many different ways, like tried to slow it down or play the rhythm differently. We even tried it with a drum machine. I like covers where the band makes it sound like their version of the song. For example, when the Jesus and Mary Chain covered Bo Diddley’s ‘Who Do You Love?’ or when Joan Jett did ‘Crimson and Clover’ by Tommy James & The Shondells.” Read the full interview here.
