Old Haunt Studios
Release: 28 January 2022

Bio:
LUCAS DI MASCIO | MICHAEL FARINA

Formed in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, Lucas and Michael started a recording project as a means to test out recording techniques and production ideas. Believing it is collectively some of the best music the duo has created they’ve decided to release these recordings in a limited edition physical format with a bonus drum sample back made during the recordings to help spark other artists’ creativity in these uncertain times.

Ep description:
Secondhand Depression’s four song self-titled EP is filled with dark melodies, creative use of lo-fi elements and percussion, as well as appropriately moody atmospheres. The duo takes it’s listeners on a DIY goth rock inspired journey. Songs about life as an artist during the pandemic, holding onto bitter sweet memories of touring and band rehearsals as well as the often crippling doubt that infects most (if not all) creatives are the subject matter.

One thing is for certain, Secondhand Depression has embraced it’s shadow-kissed essence and have manipulated their discomfort into something beautifully raw.
