Flatbush Zombies’ Vacation In Hell showcased that the group remains one of the game’s most promising trifectas, a staple in the burgeoning New York scene. While it’s been a minute since we’ve heard anything from the combined minds of Zombie Juice, Erick Arc Elliot, and Meechy Darko, it would appear that they’re getting back in the saddle for a press run of sorts. Last night, the Zombies hit up The Late Late Show With James Corden, and while they didn’t hold it down for “Carpool Karaoke,” they did take their single “Headstones” to the stage.
While the original single features a menacing, simmering instrumental, this particular rendition flips the script. Taking a page outta Radiohead’s Grammy Award performance of 15 Step, Flatbush Zombies came through with the University of Southern California marching band on the arrangement. The end result is a lively, far more energetic take than one might expect, though far from unwelcome.
Check out “Headstones” now, and bask in the sheer energy put forth by a truly enjoyable trio.
