Sometimes the best method to showcase the power and beauty of a song is the straight performance video. Filmed at Hemingways bar in Hollywood, CA (as visually literary a space as it sounds), Dead Sara give “Sorry For It All” (from their self-titled debut album due this fall) simple treatment, yet there’s no lack of heft to what you see and hear. Both the song and video ebb in, emotionally expand, only to take you off of a cliff leaving something of an ache behind. Emily Armstrong’s intensity may be front and center, but on display are the four distinct parts that comprise the extraordinary whole that is Dead Sara.
If you’re fortunate enough to be in the LA area on July 7th, you can find Dead Sara rocking this song and more on the famed stage of The Viper Room in West Hollywood.
