THE "MOTHERFUCKIN" DEATH SET
About This Release
Two years after the release of The Death Set's critically acclaimed album, Michel Poiccard, the Australian duo Johnny Siera and Dan Walker join forces with Dim Mak and hard-hitting drummer Will Broussard to unleash their latest offering. Always strange and ridiculously catchy, with their latest EP, King Babies, The Death Set return to their punk origins. Capturing the mayhem of their live shows, King Babies is both noisy and melodic with maximum energy.
Produced and mixed by Dan Walker in his Brooklyn studio, The Submarine, King Babies is a collection of what people have grown to love from this bizarre art punk band. Opener "Lite the Fuse" is a screaming punk ode to its moombahton-inspired beat and grimy bass line. Explosive stream of consciousness lyrics break with just enough time to catch your breath before hitting the pit. Eighties-hardcore-inspired "Think Shank" follows suit with electronic builds, back and forth vocals and a half-time bridge that begs you to bounce. Voted most likely to get uncontrollably stuck in your head is the EP's anthem "Soar Away.” Paying homage to their popular tracks like "Negative Thinking," "Soar Away" is a melodic journey about conquering self-doubt. King Babies closes strong with "The Enemy," with electronic blips and a stomping beat behind lyrics that give voice to the madness of our internal dialogue. The Death Set is excited to join Dim Mak, a label that launched on hardcore seven inches and has grown into an EDM superpower -- the fit is snuggly and perfect..
The EP is now out and can be found at the available links!!!
