Waterloo, ON-based power pop band, Death Party Playground was formed in 2013 and is really about the creative evolution of singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Kyle Taylor. The band will be releasing their new album, Little Joy on January 17, 2020. Today, we are happy to unveil their brand new single, “Rubber Man” ahead of the release.
On one hand, the album showcases Kyle’s undeniable lyrical and melodic skills, but at the same time, it displays how Death Party Playground has evolved into a true band, with bassist Dylan Bravener and drummer Sam Kargus providing the rhythmic backbone. The results are a combination of late-‘70s New York energy and early-‘90s Britpop drama, but most all it’s the sound of a group of young musicians discovering their distinctive chemistry.
Check out “Rubber Man” below and be sure to stay up to date with Death Party Playground via their socials.
