LA based folk-punk artist DEEPAKALYPSE has shared his new single “Drummers,” to be featured on his debut full length album Floating on a Sphere – due out July 8th on Everloving Records. The track premiered exclusively at Grimy Goods, who refers to it as “the perfect accompaniment for all your summer adventures.”
Deepakalypse is a forward thinking, inward looking, biofueled songwriting autodidact. He’s wandered across America, guitar in hand, doing everything from veggie oil conversions on vintage Mercedes diesel engines to fabrication of large scale art installations and lived to write about it. Floating On A Sphere, his first effort with LA staple indie label Everloving Records, compiles work from previously self-released material that rides the rails between lo fi acoustic punk and agit folk a-la Jonathan Richman or Billy Bragg.
As a debut, Floating On A Sphere is a modern take on the itinerant wanderer living freely under the hobo code. Political and prickly without resorting to nihilism, Deepakalypse has taken an honest approach to songwriting that’s influence is obliquely rooted in the American experience.
