Where L.A. Witch's self-titled album oozed with vibe and atmosphere, with
the whole mix draped in reverb, sonically placing the band in some distant
realm, broadcast across some unknown chasm of time, Play With Fire
comes crashing out of the gate with a bold, brash, in-your-face rocker
"Fire Starter." The authoritative opener is a deliberate mission statement.
"Play With Fire is a suggestion to make things happen," says Sanchez.
"Don't fear mistakes or the future. Take a chance. Say and do what you
really feel, even if nobody agrees with your ideas. These are feelings that
have stopped me in the past. I want to inspire others to be freethinkers
even if it causes a little burn." And by that line of reasoning, "Fire Starter"
becomes a call to action, an anthem against apathy. From there, the
album segues into the similarly bodacious rocker "Motorcycle Boy"_a feisty
love song inspired by classic cinema outlaws like Mickey Rourke, Marlon
Brando, and Steve McQueen. At track three, we hear L.A. Witch expand
into new territories as "Dark Horse" unfurls a mixture of dustbowl folk,
psychedelic breakdowns, and fire-and-brimstone organ lines. And from
there, the band only gets more adventurous.
Play With Fire is a bold new journey that retains L.A. Witch's siren-song
mystique, nostalgic spirit, and contemporary cool. Despite the stylistic
breadth of the record, there is a unifying timbre across the album's nine
tracks, as if the trio of young musicians is bound together as a collective of
old souls tapping into the sounds of their previous youth.
