We think we can all relate to the feelings behind “Good News” is an energetic counterpunch to doomscrolling culture and a news environment that feeds off misery

You can listen to “Good News “ on Spotify and on Apple Music

We are absolutely smitten with this track . It’s simple and to the point-Brilliant. SARCHASM basically puts to music what we all feel .

“There’s never the letup, and there’s never a payoff to feel like you have any reason to be happy with anything; even if there’s a positive thing,” said bassist Alex Botkin. “There’s instantly another bad thing.”

“It’s not just that we get bad news, it’s that there’s always bad news,” Stevie adds. “The media thrives on bad news, and they want us to feel like shit, because that’s how they get more clicks. There were so many times where I saw articles during the pandemic and just in general, where I’m like, ‘Yeah, things are really shitty.’ But also, they’re definitely leaning into the worse things that are happening. Good news doesn’t really sell in the same way. It is, unfortunately, up to us to create the good news that we want to see.”
