La Sera have shared “Running Wild,” a song from their third album, “Hour Of The Dawn,” out May 13.
La Sera is led by Katy Goodman, and “Hour of the Dawn” is the band’s first release since Goodman’s “other” band, Vivian Girls, played its farewell shows.
“I wanted the new La Sera record to sound like Lesley Gore fronting Black Flag,” Goodman says in a press release. “I didn’t want it to be another record of me sad, alone in my room. I wanted to have fun playing music and writing songs with a band.”
Goodman, on bass and vocals, assembled a new band helmed by guitarist Todd Wisenbaker.
“We started playing faster, louder and more aggressively,” Goodman says. “I wanted to get that energy onto the album.”
