Flatbush Zombies have released a new single “Afterlife” and it’s produced by none other than James Blake. The song follows the releases of their EP Now, More Than Ever, which was released nearly two months ago.
Flatbush Zombies celebrated the release in a big way. The collective shared on Instagram a billboard promoting the song in Denver, Colorado. The billboard reads: “Juice got stoned and rented this random billboard in the middle of Denver. It’s the marketing strategy for our new song “Afterlife.” (Produced by James Blake).”
Backed by a piano, James Blake produces a haunting hip-hop tune. The instrumental is moody, mournful, and unusually atmospheric. Immediately setting the tone, the production speaks for itself, with all attention focusing on the ghoulish sounds.
Erick Arck comes in quick with a speedy verse that finds him at ease with the production. Meechy Darko later arrives for the second verse that is quite timid than expected.
Flatbush Zombies have also premiered the music video for the song which was directed by Arnaud Bresson (prior to the pandemic).
