Sweet Anxiety: Press Kit

Sweet Anxiety has just released a new single titled "The Loss" on all the major streaming platforms, Bancamp, and sweetanxiety.com

The Loss is dark and grungy with generous dashes of angst. It touches on the feelings of sadness and anger of being alienated from your own flesh and blood. Losing contact with your own sons. Wanting to bid them a safe journey through life, hoping and wishing to see them again.

A strong blend of grunginess and punk inspired anger and aggression. Lyrically touching on the internal battles and frustrations of everyday life. Sweet Anxiety is the brainchild of rock musician Sammy Allitt. Fully independent with a strong DIY ethic “No one here is really doing their solo stuff fully amped. I wanted to do this my own way, on my own terms, and at full noise.” 
Sammy dons the sticks, the strings, and the vox in this solitary-based project. Every facet is lovingly curated in-house from a basement studio in Melbourne Victoria, Australia.

Sammy has been around the Melbourne music scene since the mid-’90s as a live sound engineer, in the naughties playing the guitars for hard rock band Samurai With No Sword, and recently as the drummer for The Broken Sweethearts and The Vinyl Ground. Sammy also made an EP appearance on drums for Geelong indie band Dirty Dance Machine.

“He is one of the hardest workers going and deserves all the love.” Dirty Dance Machine.
