Sarcastic Sounds squeezes songs out of life’s complexities, turning conflicted relationships, quirky conversations, and eye-opening realizations into bubblegum-sticky melodies. The Toronto-born / Los Angeles-based self-described “singer-songwriter, music producer, music nerd, and angsty little sad boy” will let you into his deepest thoughts and leave you singing along. His career has certainly highlighted each one of those aforementioned phases as he morphed from behind-the-scenes producer to artist (without losing any of the nerdiness or sad boy-ness).
Initially, the world got to know Sarcastic Sounds as a producer-writer. Credits include Boy With Uke, David Kushner, Mimi Webb, Arden Jones, Anson Seabra and Powfu.. Stepping up to the microphone, 2022 saw him serve up the I’m A Disappointment EP powered by singles “say goodbye,” “change ur mind” [feat. Claire Rosinkranz & Clinton Kane], and “Disappointment” [feat. Rxseboy]. The EP reeled in north of 1 million streams first week in addition to claiming real estate on playlists such as Apple Music’s A-List Pop. After piling up over 1 billion streams to date, he translates all of the awkwardness of being “a twenty-something in the 2020’s” into his full-length debut album, Haunt You Forever [Columbia Records], introduced by lead single “Stumbling.”
