*Cassida Pax is the solo project of Ricardo Stacey.
" Drenched in the utmost dreamiest elements possible, the tracks on the EP are constructed of impossibly catchy and dreamy guitar melodies that cascade over casually sung lyrics of provocative romantic seduction while emitting an overall ’80s lo-fi bedroom-pop and hazy new wave vibe. Every single track on the EP is marvelous, we’ve never melted into an EP like this before. It’s an absolute pleasure spinning this EP, plain and simple."

"Dreamy, cloudy. Distant pop, subtle new wave tension. 1980's inspiration, dance party illusion. Ideas made, attempts broken. Love along with disappointment, sincerity and hope. Sleeping in long enough to only see the sun set, making the night your day and forgetting what you missed. Blinded by the city lights during your drive, without a prominent destination. Cassida Pax's 'Sin By Proxy' EP is the soundtrack to careless attraction, smeared by the lipstick of an indie darling."
"There’s a certain aesthetic that comes along with a lot of lo-fi music and while I feel like it can be an acquired taste for some, there’s something about Los Angeles’ Cassida Pax that’s incredibly alluring and endearing and it goes way beyond the grainy and fuzzy quality of the recordings. Throughout the sentimental 80’s undertones, dreamy guitar harmonies, and hazy vocals, lies a distinctive honesty and sincerity that surrounds everything that you hear from Cassida Pax and it all helps to make his style that much more enjoyable. His sound tightly wraps itself around you while slowly seeping into your mind and illuminating the most dimly lit parts of it and all the while, it’s as if you’re captured in a dream that you never want to wake up from"
