Los Angeles pop-punk musician Levi Zadoff and Ottawa punk newcomer Dead Hendrix are sharing their new EP, DEAD SUMMER, and you can stream it in full right here at New Noise.
The EP features the duo coming to terms with the summers we lost to COVID-19, not only in the metaphorical death of summer over the past two years but also resonating in the profound loss of life, friends and family due to the virus and the drug abuse that the global pandemic exacerbated. The pair used those feelings of loss and angst to fuel the DEAD SUMMER‘s tracklist, full of sentiments listeners far and wide are sure to relate to.
Dead Hendrix and Levi Zadoff also collaborated with a number of producers for the project, including IOF (Future, Paris Shadows), Yago Beats, SPLASHGVNG (Lil Peep, Sewerperson) and Imani Beats. The producers further elevate the duo’s punk fusion sound with experimental pop-punk and rap-rock elements, elevating the relatable songwriting, infectious hooks, and catchy, angst-filled vocals to the next level.
Levi Zadoff chats more about the DEAD SUMMER EP:
“This project means the world to me, it was extremely fun to create and a pain in the ass to release, but most importantly, it’s probably the most authentic yet experimental piece of work I’ve ever been a part of making.”
Dead Hendrix adds, “This is the closest thing (so far) to my musical aspirations coming to life. It’s the perfect blend of melody, edge, counterculture, and relevance that I want to make. I think with Levi, I am finally making the music I have envisioned since I was 13.”
