Premiere: See Dear Sara Perform ‘Mona Lisa’ Live in West Hollywood

Los Angeles group Dead Sara have been one of BlackBook’s go-to rock bands since the release of their eponymous debut album in 2012. Just this March, we caught up with the band again to discuss the release of their second album Pleasure to Meet You, and how their sound has evolved over the past three years. Since then, Emily Armstrong (vocals, guitar), Sean Friday (drums, backing vocals), Siouxsie Medley (lead guitar, backing vocals) and Chris Null (bass guitar, backing vocals) have wrapped up their second, completely sold out tour of North America. Without wasting any time, they’re already working on their next album. Apparently, hardcore rockers can also be hardcore prolific.

Premiering today on BlackBook is a new video for their track Mona Lisa, shot live at the Troubadour in West Hollywood. We’ve yet to see the band IRL, but after watching this clip, are fully determined to see Armstrong in action. Her crassly textured voice, sometimes emitted with delicate vibrato, at other times strappingly solid, glides over feisty guitar chords, which pulsate like the song’s heartbeat. Check out the video below, and learn more about Dead Sara here.
