Taking Meds

About this Artist

Based in Brooklyn, NY, Taking Meds is a melodic and angular indie-rock / post-hardcore band that shares members with a former incarnation of the band Such Gold. Since forming in 2013, Taking Meds have often been a band that doesn't neatly fit into any one category, covering aspects of math rock, hardcore, pop-punk, indie rock and melodic punk with hooks. Gearing up for the release of their new LP ‘Dial M For Meds’, the group have channeled all the inventiveness of their past work into the most direct and hook-driven songs they've ever written. The album manages to be instantly memorable and accessible while still having the teeth and eccentricity that longtime fans have come to expect from Taking Meds. Its '90s-influenced sound makes for the perfect delivery system for vocalist/guitarist Skylar Sarkis' lyrics which provide cynical, hilarious, and deeply human commentary on spending your adulthood chasing the often intangible high of creative pursuits.
