Take a break from ark building for some folk-pop from Sarah & The Meanies.
Fronted by Northwest transplant Sarah Angela, the band released its first collection of songs, a five-song EP entitled “Slam Pam Suno,” earlier this year. The album is an excellent example of this female folk-pop trend. Acoustic guitars strum rock riffs over poppin’ live drum beats while Sarah’s soulful voice belts out pop melodies. Add to that some subtle, well-placed synth flourishes, and it’s a surefire sound likely to appeal to fans across a handful of genres.
Sarah has sang the national anthem before the LA Lakers and the Portland Trailblazers, but on Saturday she was at the 1st Bank Center singing about bombs bursting in air before a Denver Roller Dolls bout. Sarah & The Meanies also debuted the video for the EP’s title track at the bout.
