Having impressed us with a string of bold and immersive singles over the last few months, LA-based artist Sara Jackson-Holman is back with another rousing delight in the form of ‘Beep Beep Bitch’.
With its raw and pulsing sound, ‘Beep Beep Bitch’ is the latest of many huge bangers from her this year. Filled with bouncing beats, sweeping vocals, and stellar production from Stefan Macarewich, her newest release is definitely one to play with the volume all the way up!
Speaking about the release, she said, “Beep Beep Bitch is one of 3 singles centred around self and ego—whereas much of what I’ve written has been more about how I define myself in relation to others. It’s an irreverent, petty ode to letting go of those who are intent on misunderstanding you. I have always cared so much about how I come across, what I say, second-guessing myself constantly. There has always been something illicit, irreverent, and taboo about hip hop and pop— articulating confidence with such naked ego (and willingness to offend) that felt completely inaccessible to me personally. I have been so often moved to tears, with what I can only imagine is catharsis, hearing someone own their egoic impulses without qualification. I have long felt that I could be freer to say what I’d like if I was writing for someone else. Or under a pseudonym. In an exercise to try to find out what I’d have to do in order to feel comfortable writing the kind of pop songs I wanted to write, I went as far as thinking I’d have a concept project, in which someone lip-synced and was the face of my music. Someone who I thought could embody what I was saying better than I myself could. While it might be true that someone could do these songs more justice than me, I’m glad I settled on releasing them under my name. These songs are a practice in surrendering how others might perceive me in service of giving myself more flexibility to explore my range as a songwriter.”
