Supersize Me by Sarchasm

“With the music written primarily by Isabel and the lyrics a set of Alex’s finest; Alex chose to tackle his frustration at the slacky, pretentious kids who sat around him in class and bragged about blowing off homework to play sports and videogames. Alex’s lyrics are wry, snarky, and full of clever wordplay as he channels equal parts Elvis Costello and early Billie Joe Armstrong. Musically, Isabel wanted to fit the tone of the song, so, drawing inspiration from Berkeley’s own Dance Hall Crashers, she crafted a fun, ska-tinged poppy song with a scathingly sassy melody. As far as Sarchasm’s future sound goes, Supersize Me is a pretty good indication of the direction we’re going in for album #3: fun, angry, scathingly honest indie punk.”

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.
