almost sex share delightful debut EP ‘We’re Okay’

Brooklyn Based, boy-girl duo almost sex return with their debut EP, the gorgeous 5 track body of work We’re Okay. Featuring an eclectic, heady blend of impeccable indie-folk, Lo-fi pop, alt rock and all topped off with a dash of sweet americana, the project is ingeniously crafted.

Having connected on Hinge back in 2020 at the height of the pandemic, Nick Louis and Warren LaSota’s music met before they did. Sending demos, tracks and lyrics back and forth, they creatively came together long before  physically meeting one another.

Showcasing a balance of electronic and organic We’re Okay conjures a satisfying duality. Combining soft padded beats and percussions from a 1979 analog drum machine, smooth electric guitar, fuzzy, reminiscent vocal effects and varying acoustic instrumentation on selective tracks. 

Alongside the dynamics that contrast yet compliment at every corner you have an almost Yin and Yang effect taking place in the musicianship. An ebb and flow that makes We’re Okay equal parts Nick and equal parts Warren, lovingly put together and produced by Ken Helmlinger.

With the utmost care and attention to detail alongside sheer talent, magic and creativity We’re Okay is nothing short of a modern day masterpiece in the Indie music world.

“The process of writing and recording this EP involved us stripping things back a bit to consolidate the core elements that made up our sound. Our drummer had been away for work for most of the year, so we began performing shows with an analog drum machine from 1979. We decided to take it into the studio with us and it ended up becoming the principal instrument featured on most of these tracks. Much of the lyrical content of the project centers around themes of getting older in an increasingly frightening and hyper-commodified world.”  – almost sex
