No one makes heartbreak sound quite so appealing these days than Katie Goodman of La Sera. But the erstwhile Vivian Girls member is looking to have a little more fun on her third record Hour of the Dawn and first single “Running Wild” which premiered on Noisey.
“I wanted the new La Sera record to sound like Lesley Gore fronting Black Flag,” Goodman said 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.” To back her nimble basslines and enchanting vocals, Goodman assembled a new band helmed by guitarist Todd Wisenbaker.
“Running Wild” fits the bill. It’s an uptempo, vibrant dash through a rush of emotions.
“We started playing faster, louder and more aggressively…I wanted to get that energy onto the album.”
