Hot off the back of their comeback track “Mental” (listen here), Aussie Pop-Rock power-house Sarahj. is set to release their much-anticipated lead single “Step by Step” on February 22nd, with their sophomore EP “Afterthought” to follow on February 29th. 

Listen to “Step by Step” below. Stream & download the track on Spotify and Apple Music.

Whilst their debut EP “Reaper” was written in signature Sarahj. fashion; taking piano ballads and developing them as a band in a rehearsal space; this time around the band took a slightly different approach. With their demos in tow, they joined forces with Melbourne-based producers Evan Lee and Ash Daws from The Loud Noise Estate (Polaris, Young Lions, BLKLST, Aburden) to help bring their vision to fruition.

Stripping back the existing demos of “Mental” and “Other Half” and rebuilding them completely from the ground up, and using seeds of an idea to co-write two of the stand out tracks “Step by Step” and “2”; what they ultimately emerged with was a collection of darker and more mature sounding tracks than their previous releases.

“"Afterthought" is ultimately about finding hope and refuge in yourself, letting loose your true feelings, even if you feel the world is backed up against you”, say’s vocalist Sarah Jones. High energy, fierce, and full of pure emotion, the EP is as punishing as it is heart-wrenching, and is sure to captivate fans new and old.

Since cutting their teeth to audiences in and around Melbourne, including to a 5000 strong crowd at St Kilda Festival in 2018 and a sell-out EP launch for the debut release “Reaper”, Sarahj. is ready to become a household name. They thrive in a live environment, delivering an energetic and hard-hitting show, that blows away audiences at every opportunity. With new direction and sound in tow, they are incredibly excited for their fans to hear what they’ve created with “Afterthought”.

Sarahj. has no plans on slowing down for the rest of 2019, with more new songs already on the horizon. “We’re currently writing new music, and we’re itching to get it out ASAP”, says Sarah.

“Step by Step” is out now, whilst the ”Afterthought” EP (which is currently available for pre-Save here) will be available worldwide on all streaming platforms on February 29th.
