Sunset Of Youth with Sad S - An Interview

O ucraniano, de Kiev, Serj Kost é a mente por trás do sombrio Sad S.

Como se os tempos da batcave retornassem das catacumbas dos 80´s, e aparecem em pleno 2017, menos teatrais e sombrios, e mais claustrofóbicos e caóticos, tal qual o tempo em que vivenciamos.

Ao lado de Bleib Modern, Ash Code, Second Still, Sextile, o novato Sad S se mostra como um dos melhores antídotos para a musiquinha alegre e hipster que se ouve por aí,

Note, apenas dois singles, pouco mais de seis meses de atividade, e uma intensidade poderosa, olhos e ouvidos atentos no Sad S.
