The music scene in Western Massachusetts has begun to blossom during these last couple of years, bringing a slew of talented artists with it. Deadmall is a prime example of such talent, and the group is back on the Graduation Music site today with two new singles titled “Cold” and “Warm”. Recruiting Rothstein for “Cold”, Gabe Gill and Honeyftiz concocted a pair of melodic offerings that have added even more depth to an already solid discography.
As mentioned previously, “Cold” features Cambridge-native Rothstein, and is a truly icy release that accurately grasps the feelings attached with mid-January in New England. Both Gabe Gill and Honeyfitz make use of the first portion of the song to release some of what’s been weighing on their minds as they paint images of a scenic winter. Rothstein wraps up the beautiful record with a slippery, yet well-kept verse that puts the ribbon on a wonderfully gift-wrapped song.
“Warm” is the second track that Deadmall released, and seamlessly transitions into a brighter, more hopeful state of mind. This song adds an additional layer of melodic harmony onto Deadmall’s discography, and offers powerful lyricism that is truly thought-provoking. Both Gabe Gill and Honeyfitz possess the ability to deliver thoughtful messages that are joyous to listen-to, and this attribute is something that I believe will help Deadmall gain a larger audience as 2019 continues to unravel. The duo should be extremely proud of the work that they’ve put in.
