Artist to Watch: Dead Sara

Dead SaraI was introduced to the Los Angeles based rock band Dead Sara last year when I was emailed their self-titled debut.  The band is fronted by Emily Armstrong and includes Siouxsie Medley on guitar, Sean Friday on drums, and Chris Null on bass.

When any album is loaded into my playlist to review, I tend to dive in with my ears half cocked. I am handed “new” music all the time, and I say “new” because 80% of the time new bands just sound like copycats of other artists currently topping the charts.  Enter Dead Sara. From the moment I listened to “Weatherman” off their self-titled release, I was floored.  I fell in love with this quartet because I found an album I caught myself knowing all the lyrics to after several rotations in my music playlist.  It’s such a rarity to find an album in these times that I can listen to from beginning to end and not have boredom set in.  While “Weatherman” does attract most of the raves from critics, “Whispers & Ashes” has left a permanent mark on my brain.  Thank goodness the release of their album last October was just the start for Dead Sara. We caught up with Emily Armstrong and the interview can be seen here.

This year is shaping up to be a great year for the band.  They are set to play Van’s Warped Tour (tour dates below), which comes off a West Coast tour with Bush late last year.   The group is also set to release a 3 song EP featuring the song “Weatherman” on February 7th via Pocket Kid Records/Fontana/Universal. The digital release will also feature “Sorry for it All” and the acoustic rendition of “Test On My Patience.”

This summer make plans to catch these Los Angeles rockers on Warped Tour! You may just find your new favorite band on the bill. I know I found mine.
