“The L.A. Sessions” EP takes listeners through wild journeys, with compelling narratives of the protagonists. Dirty Money takes place on the edge of the Wild West, with idealised connotations of romance and dreams in the Golden State. However, behind these lay the dark truth, everything comes at a price. Listeners find out the consequences of this theme as they follow the protagonist of the song, a man obsessed with money and power in the city of dirty money and corpses buried in the desert. Somebody To Love follows the turbulent relationship of two women in a western bar, clashing heads at closing time. Meanwhile, Fever explores the idea of life as a road movie, with the message of keep moving and don’t let anyone stop you on this journey. To conclude the EP, Wait depicts the crossroads one would reach in this dirty city, where the devil awaits you. Santos ends this track focusing on the idea of turning the corner and progressing past these issues that emerge.
