Your Instagram bio says “Angry songs for sad people”. Can you define that a bit more?
Milkie: “Angry songs for sad people” was always something that was at the core of what we were writing. People always ask you to describe your music, and I feel like that’s the most vivid way we could. We’re angry and sad, and those are the songs we made.
Sam: We started writing these songs and, when you distribute your songs, you’re allowed to make up your own label. We’re the kind of people that get sad but we confront our issues head-on. I go more for rage than for sorrow. WARGASM songs are always kind of aggressive and capture that angry energy.
Why is music for you the best way to express those feelings?
Sam: There’s a lot of things you can do with music because it’s quite trivial. Although, for example, painting is something physical, I don’t know if you get the same intellectual reward. If you do not choose to look into lyrics, you don’t have to think too much about it. When you’re shouting into a microphone or shredding a guitar, you get an instant physical release, and the reward happens in that exact moment. Music is maybe something for people with a smaller scope than a physical artist or a painter.
