Flatbush Zombies


Listen to Thug Waffle

Shocking, revolting, yet somehow eternally endearing, the Flatbush Zombies are a genuine mystery in a musical landscape where few still exist. Meechy Darko, and Juice, Brooklyn bred youth with a penchant for gold grills, Charles Manson and Air Jordans, rose out of complete obscurity on the back of an Erick Arc Elliott produced synth heavy, weed laced banger entitled "Thug Waffle," an ode to marijuana and breakfast foods which immediately propelled them to the forefront of New York's fresh crop of talent. Their seamless recipe of can't-look-away visual appeal and deft lyricism had them opening for ASAP Rocky, Danny Brown and Schoolboy Q within a month while peaking the interest of everyone from Lana Del Rey to Vice, The Fader, and Village Voice magazines. With Brooklyn behind them and their first full-length release due in the Spring, the Zombies from Flatbush are bringing back the sort of show stopping noise the city hasn't seen in a very, very long time.
