Dead Sara

Dead Sara have been highlighted by me previously, and they just released their second album “Pleasure To Meet You”. The band, evoking shades of Hole, Sleater-Kinney and L7 play straightforward guitar driven rock. The band comparisons are mostly due to vocalist/guitarist Emily Armstrong and guitarist Siouxsie Medley – you don’t see too many female-fronted rock bands. The L.A.-based group is rounded out by Chris Null on bass and Sean Friday on the drum kit. Armstrong is aperfect vocalist for this type of music. Her voice is strong and passionate with a wide range, and she also brings a nice rasp to her vocals. The urgency and passion she performs with is engaging and infectious. She is definitely one of my favorite vocalists currently performing.

The band’s new album is not a sophomore letdown. I think it says a lot when you listen through the entire album and you’re surprised how quickly you reach the end. The 11 tracks roll through briskly and while there are some definite highlights, there are no duds to be found. I really hope this band continues to build in popularity because they deserve it. They have already earned praise from many the industry including Courtney Love who asked Armstrong to sing on a Hole album, Grace Slick who stated Armstrong is the most exciting vocalist out there right now and Dave Grohl who said “Dead Sara should be the next biggest rock band in the world”. When Dead Sara toured with Muse in 2013, Chicago Music Monthly stated “Dead Sara is an example of everything that is right with rock and roll. Their live show is one that will NOT be forgotten for hundreds of Muse fans seeing them for the first time.” If you’re in the mood for some fun, high energy music, try streaming some Dead Sara!
