Alt-pop quartet Transviolet rocked The Late Show on Monday night (Oct. 22) with the powerful single “Undo” from their Valley EP. The song is the band’s first since parting ways with Epic Records and fittingly focuses on being resilient and staying true to who you are.  

The L.A.-based group performed on a stage lit up by purple lights that seemed to suggest the band's name. Lead Sarah McTaggart wore a jean jacket that slowly slipped off her shoulders, instantly hinting at the song's vulnerability, even as she admitted to sometimes being her own worst enemy. “I always find the most creative ways to destroy myself/ Yeah, I can tear me down better than anybody else,” she tenderly sang accompanied by a gentle piano.

Her voice became expressive on the chorus. “Oh, come on, just say something/ No, go ahead, tell me, what do I need?/ I’m not the kind of girl you undo,” she sang, her eye rolls, head shakes and shoulder rocks bleeding with power. Every piece of the performance screamed the same thing: that the band is doing okay, and its members are going to keep pushing forward, no matter what obstacles are thrown in their way.
