La Sera recently announced a new album, entitled Sees the Light, for a March 2012 release. La Sera also shared the first single from that album, “Please Be My Third Eye”, as well as one scheduled tour date January 12 at Los Angeles’ The Echo. Check out the single after the jump:
La Sera is a side project headed by Katy “Kickball Katy” Goodman of Brooklyn band Vivian Girls. Sees the Light comes after the success of her self titled debut in 2011. According to the press release:
Where the first La Sera album was super-dreamy in its layered vocals, Sees The Light is more direct, more aggressive; almost a soundtrack to a lost drive-in movie classic. This is not an album for half-hearted partakers in the heartache scene: just an all-consuming love for punk as pop and pop as punk. Songs such as “Don’t Stay” soar away into the stratosphere, solemn and possessed of singular beauty. “Real Boy” is playfully driven in comparison: like being whisked away to a tropical island, while “Drive On” is tear-laden and full of hidden menace like a David Lynch film.
Sees the Light is due out March 4 on Hardly Art. Check out the track list and a free download of “Please Be My Third Eye” below:
