Video: La Sera - "Real Boy" / "Drive On"

"Kickball" Katy Goodman releases a new video under project Le Sera.

Vivian Girl Katy Goodman is back with a new video for her songs "Real Boy" and "Drive On" off of the album "See the Lights", which was available in stores March 26th. The video splits between a dreamy Katy who's heartsick over a bodybuilder and her subsequent kidnapping by a mysterious woman who ends up stealing Katy's face after hers was lost in a car wreck. The video is a perfect compliment for the more cutesy and sunny "Real Boy" and the darker and more complex "Drive On." Personally, I thought La Sera's self-titled debut last year was highly underrated – it showed Goodman's skills as a solo artist and was one of those albums you can listen to all the way through without realizing it. I also might be biased since Vivian Girls were my first band interview and Katy was so nice – she's also from New Jersey just like us! But if you don't hail from the Garden State, you should still pick up "See the Lights" – it sounds like Goodman has certainly grown from her last album in a delightful way.
