Stars of Spunky Synth-Pop: JD Samson and Men bring a playful and political sound to town: Music section: Metro Weekly →
"People think our music is really fun," says JD Samson of the indie electronic/punk group JD Samson and Men. "But then when you listen to the lyrics," she adds with a laugh, "they’re really depressing."
In truth, nothing about the indie electronic/punk group JD Samson and Men is depressing. The Brooklyn-based queer collective, whose other core member is guitarist Michael O’Neill, is just too playful and energetic to provoke a sense of despair. Even those pointed lyrics that some might consider depressing — typically expressing liberal angst about our conservative, capitalistic times — are sung in a giddy style and set to spunky, upbeat music steeped in the happy sounds of ’80s synth-pop.
Tickets for this Sunday’s show with JD Samson & Men, Ex Hex, and Coup Sauvage & The Snips are going FAST - do not miss out!
