Editorial Reviews

About the Artist

Music history is rich with rock bands fronted by dynamic duos. Looking to carry on this yin and yang tradition are two talented young women, singer Emily Armstrong and guitarist Siouxsie Medley, who front Los Angeles' Dead Sara -- an electrifying four-piece rock band whose supercharged music is propelled by Medley's exhilarating, monster guitar riffs and Armstrong's powerful, wailing vocals.

The two musicians are a study in contrast onstage: Medley remains rooted in place -- a solid, steady anchor for Armstrong's almost unhinged performance style. A skilled vocal stylist who can handle blues, soul, and folk-rock with equal aplomb, Armstrong can unleash a guttural howl one minute and trill as pretty as a songbird the next. (When asked by the Wall Street Journal recently which female rock singers she admired, legendary Jefferson Airplane singer Grace Slick namechecked Armstrong, citing her "strong, urgent sound.")

Dead Sara, which also includes bassist Chris Null and drummer Sean Friday, has attracted major buzz for the ferocious spectacle of its high-octane live performances. Of a January show at The Troubadour, L.A.'s indie-rock tastemaker website Picksysticks.com raved: "You almost forgot you were watching a rock show in the 450-capacity Troubadour and not in a venue like Staples Center that holds thousands when Dead Sara launched into their soon-to-be mega hit `Weatherman.'" OC Weekly has praised the band for its "blazing, impassioned classic rock, punk/indie jams, catchy guitar melodies, and songs about not backing down," while Buzzbands.la noted that Dead Sara's "strain of primal rock is loud enough to awaken the ghosts in both the indie and metal underworlds, and maybe even get them to dance a bit."

Having spent much of last year in the studio, Dead Sara are gearing up to unleash the fruits of their labors with a three-song digital release, due February 7th and featuring the explosive first single "Weatherman," emotionally resonant ballad "Sorry For It All," and an exclusive acoustic version of "Test My Patience." Their highly anticipated self-titled debut album is slated to be released on April 10th via the band's own label, Pocket Kid Records through Fontana/Universal.

Product Description

2012 debut from the L.A.-based band led by Emily Armstrong and Siouxsie Medley Dead Sara, which also includes bassist Chris Null and drummer Sean Friday, has attracted major buzz for the ferocious spectacle of its high-octane live performances. Produced by Noah Sham, the music veers effortlessly from melodic, soaring tunes such as 'We Are What You Say' and 'Whispers & Ashes,' to bruised, power ballads like 'Dear Love' and 'Face To Face,' to fierce, blaring tracks 'Timed Blues,' 'Test My Patience,' and 'Weatherman.'

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Album of 2012 thus far! April 10, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
I bought this album two weeks ago when Dead Sara performed at the Vans Warped Tour Kickoff Party. It's been on repeat in my car ever since. Before the show I had heard "Weatherman" and was excited to see what they had to offer. I was blown away. The first two songs had my jaw dropping at the bands tight sound and vocalist Emily Armstrong's spectacular voice. Emily, Siouxsie, Chris and Sean were all an absolute pleasure to watch. This is a band with pure honest talent. I think they're destined for great things and I wish all the world for them.

Now for the album:

1) Whispers and Ashes - Eases you into the bands style and sound.

2) We Are What You Say - Starts picking up the tempo.

3) Weatherman - The first song where we really start to hear the range of Emily's amazing voice. She trasitions from a soft songstress to a strong powerhouse with seemingly no effort what so ever. The band starts to show their abilities as well.

4) Dear Love - The first ballad of the album. It's a lovely song, though not really a favorite.

5) Monumental Holiday - One of my favorite songs on the album. Being musically in your face, it's very reminiscent of early Hole and Wolfmother. It's a wonderful surprise in the middle of the album.

6) I Said You Were Lucky - This song is really fun to rock out to in the car.

7) Face to Face - Another ballad type and also one of my favorite songs, both musically and lyrically. The music starts off soft but comes crashing down loud and intense, and the lyrics are simply beautiful. This song, for me, is the most emotional of the album.

8) Test On My Patience - This has been my absolute favorite song on the album from day one. I think it's more from seeing it performed live than anything.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible music and performers!!! April 23, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was lucky to see "Dead Sara" in concert a few days ago, and I was amazed by their emotion and passion on stage. The album is great! The female vocalist is unreal. She sings roughly or screams in many of the songs on the album, but she also has a beautiful voice in the moments when she sings softer. High energy songs like "Monumental Holiday" and "Weatherman" really define the style of this band. Then, there is the beautiful conclusion to the album with "Sorry For It All". I would highly recommend buying this album and supporting the band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bitchin April 11, 2012
By Dathan
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm loving this album. I have always been a huge fan of good female vocals and Dead Sara didn't disappoint. The lead singer has a great voice for screaming. The album has some great rock songs that sound kind of garage band or grungy at times.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you want a GREAT rock album.... June 1, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Don't hesitate to get this now!!
I saw them open up for Chevelle a few months ago. I actually turned to my friend and thought someone from the crowd or road crew had took the stage as I had no idea who this band was or that they were one of the opening acts. I'm almost embarrassed to admit that because they absolutely f'in killed it that night! By the time they played 'Face to Face,' I was definitely a fan. GREAT live act and the emotion bleeds through to the album just as well.

They have it all on this album including big guitar tone with catchy, head-banging riffs and big swelling choruses, tight arrangements, all topped with brilliant vocals from whisper sweet to 60's rock grit to a full wail. It's rare for me to find an album this good, not a bad song. Highly recommended, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album May 20, 2012
By JPS
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been thoroughly impressed by this album.
I bought it after hearing "Weatherman" on the radio a few times, and I was unsure about what I was about to get.
What I received was a CD that quickly became one of the best in my collection.
Ranging from fast-paced rock songs with some screaming to slow-paced songs with just a guitar background, Dead Sara shows two distinct styles and succeeds with both.
Their lead singer oozes with talent, grinding out the vocally-demanded, scream-peppered rock songs with aplomb then displaying her range by singing the slowed-down, guitar-backed songs as well as any artist.
It may be hard to believe that this is their first album. A debut like this shows this may be one of the greatest bands of its generation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! September 4, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Saw this band play live. Didn't even knew who they were, and was falling asleep prior to that cause it had been a long day at work. After listening for a few seconds I suddenly felt a rush of energy. Awesome band and music. I'm looking forward to their future albums!
