BuzzChips Interviews Sad Robot

Sad Robot demands attention. Bringing an arsenal of dramatic lyrics, the threesome is a powerful force on the Los Angeles music scene. Having already met the major music landmarks of playing SXSW and Staples Center, Sad Robot is poised to make a significant mark within the music industry. Taking dance rock to a new level, Sad Robot blends together multiple genres to create a sound that is as gritty as it is appealing.

Most of Sad Robot’s songs feature an unwavering theme of revolt against the big machine. Perhaps that is why this powerhouse group has yet to sign with a major label. From their fervent ballads to their banging anthems, Sad Robot walks a tightrope of their own design just above what is expected from pop-inspired indie rock. The x-factor that makes Sad Robot stand out from other indie bands is their soul. Frontwoman and keyboardist Katherine Pawlak brings an Adele-like sound to the group’s vocals. With Jake Hogenson on drums and Nicolas Perez on guitar, Sad Robot is a uniquely balanced ‘Holy Trinity’ of sorts. Because they draw from a wide variety of genres for inspiration, Sad Robot’s song repertoire is guaranteed to have something for everyone.
