Niche presents the debut Australian tour of NYC’s Flatbush Zombies. Shocking, hilarious, sometimes revolting, and yet completely 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 dropping acid, make up the high energy trio alongside producer and lifelong friend Erick Arc Elliott.
The Zombies rose out of complete obscurity on the back of a 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 Slaughterhouse and Schoolboy Q within a month while peaking the interest of everyone from Lana Del Rey to VICE, and garnering them a show stealing guest spot on the first A$AP Rocky single, "Bath Salt."
Their first full length mixtape, D.R.U.G.S. was released in July 2012 with over 50,000 downloads in the first week and provides the backbone for their hypnotically abrasive and off the wall live show.
In the tradition of recent cutting edge rap show announcements like Kendrick Lamar and A$AP Rocky, Niche presents another picture of the puzzle, so don't miss Flatbush Zombies as they take over Sydney and Melbourne in May and June this year.
