Local Files are muted

Description

My local files most of the time aren't producing sound, though Spotify seems to be attempting to play them as the slider progresses along the song normally. What seems weird about the issue to me is that some songs will play once, then be muted if played again. To clarify, my phone's sound is completely fine for every other action and non-local songs.  

 

What are the steps you took to get to the error/issue?

I synced all of my local files to my phone via the desktop app, then I tried playing the playlist composed of nothing but local files and then the playlist with some local, some not and the issue persists on both. 

 

What I expected to happen

I expect my local files to play off my phone.
