Fractured pop music, grubby synths, and the glorious horrors of modern life
The Casual Sexists are a British/American duo based in Brooklyn, comprised of married couple Varrick and Ed Zed. They began life in London sometime prior to the absurd advent of Brexit, eventually relocating to NYC in time to experience the cockroach presidency of one DJ Trump.
Strung out on an unhealthy diet of dub, synthpop, woozy techno and the angular side of punk, The Casual Sexists craft fractured pop music out of household objects, grubby synths, and the glorious horrors of modern life.
The band sing of disillusionment and dismay, but always with the wry sense of humour that is their trademark.
Their mocking moniker was chosen as an ironic reference to Varrick and Ed’s status as a young married couple, and as a way to confront the casual sexism still so woefully ever-present in our quaint old world – a theme that recurs frequently in The Casual Sexists’ work.
Varrick and Ed’s debut album ‘Your Prescription Is Ready’ was made flesh amidst the maelstrom of COVID-19, nationwide protest and the fall of Trump, and will be released into the wilds of our new world in spring of 2021.
