Atlantic Records has announced the release of the eagerly anticipated label debut EP from Los Angeles-based alternative rock band Dead Sara. “TEMPORARY THINGS TAKING UP SPACE” arrives at all DSPs and streaming services on Friday, June 8th.
“TEMPORARY THINGS TAKING UP SPACE” is preceded by today’s Billboard premiere of two highlight tracks, “UnAmerican” and “Heaven’s Got A Back Door,” each available now at all DSPs and streaming services. “UnAmerican” is joined by an official companion video streaming HERE while “Heaven’s Got A Back Door” comes accompanied by a striking visualizer, streaming HERE.
With “TEMPORARY THINGS TAKING UP SPACE,” Dead Sara takes an extraordinary, yet still very natural step forward.
Produced by Tony Hoffer, known for his acclaimed work with Beck, M83, and Air, the EP sees the trio – Emily Armstrong (vocals and guitar), Siouxsie Medley (lead guitar), and Sean Friday (drums) – confidently expanding their already adventurous sonic palette with the incorporation of synthesizers and electronic percussive elements. In another first, Dead Sara welcomed collaborations with outside songwriters including Tommy English (BØRNS, Ladyhawke) and GRAMMY® Award-winner Simon Katz (Jamiroquai, Sia) while continuing to push their own creative songcraft even further. The result is a powerful new work more than capturing Dead Sara’s epic drive and resounding ambition.
“We finally have the music we’ve been looking for,” says Emily Armstrong. “We rebuilt everything to get here. There’s a lot of growth. Now it’s so exciting to see how this unfolds. I think we can reach a whole new level with these songs.”
