The Scary Jokes is the solo project of New Jersey-based queer musician, activist and visual artist Liz Lehman. They explore the dark side of dreamy bedroom pop, with a sound more befitting descriptors like hallucinogenic, surrealist and nightmare pop.
The Scary Jokes was created by Lehman in 2014 out of their bedroom in New Jersey. Fueled by a stream of early demos, the scary jokes began amassing a cultlike following on Tumblr. Over the course of three full-length albums, Liz turned their viral following into a massive audience of about a quarter of a million fans.
