we're very excited to be working on the debut record from Providence, RI's Lookers. Their first single "Depressed" premiered last week via The Alternative. It has received subsequent coverage from Post-Trash and NPR.
Dan Goldin of Post-Trash writes: "Sad Cactus Records have a real knack at finding great bands before anyone else is talking about them, and Providence’s Lookers are no exception. Set to release their debut EP, Mirage, on November 9th, the band’s first single “Depressed” is locked in from the very start, a circular groove bounces along with hypnotic energy before the gnashing vocals add an element of aggression. Muggs Fogarty voice ranges between sweet warble and agitated howl, both soothing and commanding, winding together with the tangled slow burn of the guitars. The song grows more caustic as it unfolds, a wash of noise permeating their brash post-punk, only to emerge deeper into their impenetrable rhythm."
