There's something about the West Coast and driving that makes for the perfect match. I don't know what it is, exactly, but between The Rolling Stones' Kristen Stewart-infused video for "Ride 'Em On Down," Lana Del Rey's whole being, and the fuzzy and dark vibes of L.A. Witch, I can't deny how closely I associate hitting the open road with the endless highways in California. And that's more true than ever with the release of the latest L.A. Witch video.
Directed by Allie Lane, L.A. Witch's video for "Drive Your Car," a standout track from their self-titled debut album, is as effortlessly cool as they come. Who knew all you'd need was some badass whips, a killer all-black wardrobe, and an unbothered attitude to be the most stylish person around?
Lane tells us, "With the 'Drive Your Car' video, I wanted to evoke a surreal state of adventure that matches the romantic lulls and highs of a road trip. L.A. Witch's psych rock swells and enigmatic lyrics called for bleached color tones, mirror mirages, and expansive desert landscapes."
Yes, indeed. It's a potent combination that's very effective. This is the vibe of which West Coast dreams are made.
