Here is a little experiment using HTML5 audio to create an app mockup for an imaginary classic car rental service.

Basic markup

<div class="container">
  <div class="app">
    <img src="../codepen/mustang/app.png">
    <div class="wrapper">
      <div class="button-outer">
        <div class="glare"></div>
        <div class="shape-1">
          <div class="shape-2">
            <div class="shape-3">
              <button id="startEngine" class="btn">
                <span class="light"></span>
                <span class="sm">Engine</span>
                <span>Start</span>
                <span>Stop</span>
              </button>
            </div>
          </div>
        </div>
      </div>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>
<audio id="engine" src="../codepen/mustang/start.mp3"></audio>

Bringing it to life

let audioElem = document.getElementById("engine");
let startEngine = document.getElementById("startEngine");

startEngine.addEventListener("click", handlePlayButton, false);
playAudio();

async function playAudio() {
  try {
    await audioElem.play();
    startEngine.classList.add("playing");
  } catch(err) {
    startEngine.classList.remove("playing");
  }
}

function handlePlayButton() {
  if (audioElem.paused) {
    playAudio();
  } else {
    audioElem.pause();
    startEngine.classList.remove("playing");
  }
}
