It’s been a little while since Allison Weiss has gone on a full-band tour. But since her (awesome) new album, New Love, is a decidedly full-band affair, she figured it was time to get into fighting shape at the office of her new label, SideOneDummy Records, and test out some of New Love live. Today, we’re bringing you a performance video of “Golden Coast,” one of New Love‘s finest moments, and it’s in all its full-band glory, from sweeping synths to a rhythm section in perfect lockstep. Weiss comments:

“SideOneDummy is the best, they fed us burritos and we played a few songs in the office. It was our first time doing stuff from the new record. We’re so stoked for tour, we wanted to jump in the van right away.”

Allison Weiss’ New Love comes out October 2 via SideOneDummy Records and can be pre-ordered here.
