Happy Trendy is only half of what it sounds like. The trendy half, to be specific. Lo-fi synths and bedroom pop is all the rage right now, and Happy Trendy (Dylan Khotin-Foote) does it well. But happy, it is not. Like most bedroom pop, it’s got a lonely “I’m in my bedroom poking at my keyboard, and it’s dreary outside” feel to it. Not to make fun, I like that feeling a lot, ’cause I’m usually like, “ya, me too.” Also, the new EP has a cemetery on the cover and is called Die Young, so that’s not happy.
Die Young is out now, and available to download here at a price of your choice (even free, you leech).
