Biography

They aren't sick of Sarah -- actually, they love Sarah.

The band, Sick of Sarah, was named when lead singer Abisha Uhl, 25, was talking to her roommate, Sarah, who was complaining that she didn't like her name, that she was "sick of Sarah." Uhl was inspired to use it as the name of her band, which originally was Sparkle Motion. After learning there were hundreds of other bands with the same name, they decided to go by Sick of Sarah.

Sick of Sarah, an all-girl band of boundless energy met through mutual friends in 2005. They are releasing their self titled debut album in summer of 2008. The band which has a strong local following in their hometown of Minneapolis are beginning to draw attention nationally. It was after winning the MTV virtual Kaya’s Battle of the Bands they released a single “Bittersweet” through LA indie Adamant Records. That single caught the attention of Spin Magazine which compared them to the Breeders and Sleater-Kinney in a “Buzzcatcher” story.

Minneapolis serves as a symbol of the Sick Of Sarah sound. The city has served as the breeding ground for some of the most iconic and diverse music, from Prince to Bob Dylan to the Replacements and Husker Du. Sick of Sarah is five young women with five different tastes in music. The debut album is an amalgam of these disparate influences; a confluence of John Fogerty, Sleater-Kinney, Michelle Branch, Babes In Toyland, and Joan Jett to name only a few. "We write all our own stuff; it qualifies as indie pop-rock," says Abisha Uhl. "It is very melodic. We like sweet melodies and ballads, but we also like punk and the edgier stuff.” Uhl further describes the music as "crazy, fun and obnoxious."

The band only in their 20’s aren’t sick of much. They love touring, recording and causing general mischief.

Lyrics

Mr. Incredible

Written By: Sick Of Sarah

Pick it up, up

Hello Mr. Incredible
Please take off your cape
Tell me all your secrets
And where you escape

And what's up Mr. Magnificent
I've got a box full of your charms
Please tell me I'm the lucky one
It could do me no harm

Hello Mr. Incredible
Your words are so edible
I wanna eat them up, up, baby it's me
You fuck me over with the lights on
Nice one
You fuck me over with the lights on

-Repeat-

Hey, hey, hey, hey

Fuck you Mr. Incredible

Paint Like That

Written By: Sick Of Sarah

So far away
We never did touch too much
I felt like this empty plate
This half sipped on coffee cup
I'll paint you sceneries
With the prettiest colors
You ever did see
And no I never paint like that
No I never paint like that
Like that

We’re so far away
No we never did talk enough
I felt like this empty place
It was made up with hollow space
And I'll write you poetry
Oh I'll use the prettiest words
That you ever did read
And No I never write like that
No I never write like that
I never write like that

Is it your heart that's tearing you apart
Is it your heart that's tearing you apart
Is it your heart that's tearing you apart

Not Listening
