Flatbush Zombies made their triumphant return in a major way, dropping their now, more than ever EP alongside a new “iamlegend” music video where they raised over $150,000 USD through merchandise sales, all going toward social justice initiatives and charities. Late last week they premiered a surprise collaboration with James Blake in “Afterlife” and earlier today they performed the offering for the first time “live” through a new NPR Tiny Desk (Home) Concert.
Erick Arc Elliot, Zombie Juice and Meechy Darko were joined by a full band ensemble in a tropical-themed Los Angeles studio space to perform “when i’m gone,” “Palm Trees,” and “Afterlife.” Anyone who knows how important live performances are to the Zombies also knows that during the current coronavirus quarantine, their presence on-stage is sorely missed. For the time being, livestreamed shows are the best that we can collectively do, and the Zombies’ ability to bring their energy to NPR’s latest installment is more than enough.
