Sweet Anxiety: Press Kit
Sweet Anxiety has just released a debut EP titled amplifier_A on Bandcamp and via sweetanxiety.com.
amplifier_A is a balls-out grunge punk aural assault. Open hi-hats, big distorted guitars, and plenty of angst.
Sweet Anxiety is the brainchild of Melbourne rock musician Sammy Allitt. It is fully independent with a strong DIY ethic.
“No one is really out there doing their solo stuff fully amped. I wanted to do this my own way, on my own terms, and at full noise.”
Sammy completed every part himself. From the songwriting to performing drums, guitar, bass, and vocals. Layered piece by piece in his basement studio, it was also mixed and mastered in-house by Sammy.
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 indie rock band The Broken Sweethearts. Sammy also made an EP appearance on drums for Geelong indie band Dirty Dance Machine last year.
“He is one of the hardest workers going and deserves all the love.” Dirty Dance Machine.
