Following the release of their polarizing single “American Muscle,” a millennial interpretation of the American Dream, Alt/Pop band Calamity the Kid are proud to announce the release of their debut EP Late Bloomer Feb 2 2018.
A four song magnifying glass into the life of a modern, still-at-home, “adult,” Late Bloomer acknowledges a societal shift in young adulthood from optimism and hope to discontent and sarcasm. Songs like “Fuckboys,” an empathic plea to a fallen friend, victim of “swipe right” dating culture or “Die Young,” one last attempt at fighting off the apathy of a generation, introduce Sam Doniger (singer and songwriter) as a discerning and fresh new voice in music. But despite the reflective nature of the stories on Late Bloomer, the music is rhythmic and untamed. You can dance to these songs… or riot, one of the two.
