Desolation Fantasy by Sarchasm

“‘Desolation Fantasy’ was one of Sofi’s big contributions to ‘Help, I Need an Adult!,’ and in her words, was her Streetlight Manifesto-inspired “anti-faking-depression-for-attention song.” Attention is something that everyone needs, she explains, and going to such drastic measures for what’ll probably be some really negative attention won’t help anyone, especially you. ‘I’m not saying that it’s not okay to be sad. All I’m saying is, if you’re not sad, why force yourself to find reasons to be? It’s much better to just laugh at the world instead.'”

Check out Germ's interview with the amazingly talented members of Sarchasm.

Sarchasm is an alternative/punk band from the San Francisco Bay Area, formed in 2010, that draws influence from many different areas: the fast-paced angst-core music of the Berkeley punk scene; the pop simplicity of The Beatles; and the youthful spirit of teenagers. Comprised of self-deprecating English major Mari Campos (lead vocals, guitar), her razor-tongued little sister Sofi Seligman (drums, vocals), the vastly intelligent anime fan/lowkey metalhead Isabel Capili (guitar, vocals), and folk historian extraordinaire Alexander Botkin; Sarchasm has spent the past few years spreading their pop-tinged indie punk tunes about friendship and radical politics all over the West Coast.  Currently, Sarchasm is in the process of booking tours, applying to/attending college(s), writing record #3, and waiting (in vain) for System of a Down to announce a new album.
