Inspired by iconic stars of the silver screen with a love for motorcycles like Mickey Rourke, Marlon Brando, and Steve McQueen — L.A. Witch have brought their “Motorcycle Boy” song to life. The classic homage to bikers of the 60s and 70s features guitarist / vocalist, Sade Sanchez cruisin’ her chopper through the California desert. Meanwhile, the scenes switch up to include Sanchez and her bandmates — bassist Irita Pai and drummer Ellie English — dressed in angelic white and singing to the tune of the behived girl groups of yesteryear. Directed by Ambar Navarro, check out the vid below!
“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 story line. 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 guitar.”
– Sade Sanchez
