Sad Baxter- So Happy EP (Cold Lunch Recordings) 2018
Life sure as hell isn’t easy, and Sad Baxter’s lead singer/guitarist Deezy Violet certainly knows that after overcoming a toxic relationship, one so bad it came close to ruining her longtime friendship with drummer Alex Mojaverian.
Still, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, and with this EP Sad Baxter prove that they are here to stay. Yes, they don’t produce anything groundbreaking, but the power of these songs is enough to make us smile and rock out like there`s no tomorrow, especially since they manage to capture the raw intensity of their live shows. This is a simple, fun EP, with influences from bands such as Nirvana and The Smashing Pumpkins but without sounding overly nostalgic. Passionate, brutally honest and addictive.
