Champagne Champagne

Champagne Champagne's new EP Private Party opens with a tremolo guitar shimmer and a live band backbeat before MCs Pearl Dragon and Thomas Gray take to the mics to rap about the apocalypse as metaphorical motivation for carpeing each and every diem. It's an odd sentiment for a band as seemingly indestructible as Champagne Champagne, but then the trio (rounded out by producer/multi-instrumentalist Mark Gajadhar) has always followed its own odd muse to unpredictable ends, from party rap to electro to some real borderline rap rock. Speaking of indestructible, Pearl recently survived second and third degree burns in a house fire in his apartment; like they say in Westeros, fire cannot kill the Dragon. With Deadkill, DJ Radjaw.
