STEFAN THEV / ghouls! zombies! skeletons!

Returning to Early Rising with one of my favorite Indie records of the year so far is Stefan Thev. Admittedly, I don’t know too much about him. The music slaps though. We lead with that.

If I didn’t know any better, I would hypothesize that STEFAN THEV hopped in a time machine and kidnapped Ian Curtis‘s droogs for this one. A lot of people tell me they can’t tell when I’m being sarcastic or not. To be honest, neither can I. Just know I mean that Joy Division connection in the highest light possible. Definitely hear some early aughts-era TV On The Radio influence as well.

“ghouls! zombies! skeletons!” sounds way more terrifying than lions, tigers, and bears! All-Madden difficulty. Another thought I’ve been having, is simply how blessed we are to exist in this space and time. The creative freedoms are unparalleled. With only 3 songs published on Spotify, I have a gut feeling we’ll be receiving some new music soon. The Brockton, Massachusetts orator seems poised to deliver. Watch the video below!
