Join comedy/pop musician Ian Lockwood (Earwolf, Hot Teens) and asembl for a listening party for Ian's new EP release Nasty! He'll be premiering the video for the single "(I Don't Think This Is) The Club" as well as lyric videos for the rest of the songs, answering questions, hanging out in the chat, chatting about the making of the album, and having a blast. Your Saturday night has never been this nasty, but trust us – you're gonna like it 😉
Nasty is the first release from comedy pop musician Ian Lockwood. On the EP, Lockwood humorously explores classic pop themes heightened to new levels of insanity (title track Nasty asks, "what if a 'bad girl' were actually manipulative and murderous") or throws a wrench in a typical pop convention ("The Club" is a classic club bop about never being able to actually find or identify a club). Other tracks throw parody out the window and pick absurd theses for pop bangers (like "Horny For Bowser", a bouncy Ariana Grande-style love song about being, well, horny for Bowser from Super Mario Brothers). Inspired by modern micro-pop icons like Carly Rae Jepsen and Kim Petras, Nasty pioneers a new style of comedy music where musical quality doesn't take a back seat to good comedy, or in Lockwood’s words, "funny bops". On Nasty, catchy hooks and impressive musical production compete with hilarious punchlines and shocking twists to create an album that begs to be revisited over and over.
Nasty EP Tracklist:
- (I Don't Think This Is) The Club
- Horny For Bowser
- Meet Me Online
- You, Me, and Your parents
