Dead Sara Return With ‘Hands Up’

Dead Sara is back!

The band have shared their new romper, “Hands Up,” their first new music in three years. Co-produced by Dead Sara drummer/programmer Sean Friday along with Noah Shain, the song is a serious rocker that features the band’s fiery energy and Emily Armstrong’s raw vocals that make their songs so visceral.

Watch the video below.

“The core of this song was written in a day, almost like a stream-of-consciousness purge, and I soon realized it was about gaslighting,” says Armstrong. “‘Hands Up’ refers to that moment when the person gaslighting you throws their hands up—like, ‘See, you’re crazy!’—and you feel absolutely helpless. They’ve gotten to the innermost part of you and twisted it.”

Dead Sara is hard at work on their next album, expected to come out 2021. The band’s latest EP, Temporary Things Taking Up Space, dropped in 2018.
