Tonight we feel excited to host the exclusive premiere on Last Day Deaf, of a pandemic born track by Brooklyn’s open-minded duo Komanda. ‘Damned City‘ contains all those elements of an instant addiction: Excellent production, anthemic and catchy chorus, poignant lyrics, genre-breaking character, and a healthy dose of drama we may all connect with.
Komanda’s statement about the song: “‘Damned City’ was born out of COVID lockdown. It’s set in a dystopian world where the narrator morphs between different personalities, starting off busking in the cold city streets, only to be plunged into a world of uncertainty and chaos. Laced with some glimmers of embittered hope in the chorus to the eventual succumbing to the voice of big brother in the final verse. This track should leave the listener with some kind of unsavory taste between their teeth.”
Vigorous, dynamic & straight-forward!
Komanda is the English transliteration of the Russian word for “team”. It is the spirit child of U.S.S.R. emigrants, songwriter/producer duo Ed Zisk and Phillip Alexeev.
When they locked gazes at a party in Brooklyn, the vibes were impeccable. They instantly bonded over their love and respect for legend shit and the rest is history.
Influenced by artists such as Tame Impala, Daft Punk, Pink Floyd, RÜFÜS DU SOL, Sofi Tukker, The Weeknd, Cher, and everything in between, Komanda blends a wide variety of genres to create a sonic eagle that traverses the time-space continuum every Wednesday to deliver deep grooves, sultry textures, and unforgettable melodies that are sure to rock the socks off babies and granmas.
From thumping dance bangers to introspective unplugged anthems, Komanda delivers a broad discography that covers the entire emotional spectrum and is guaranteed to leave you sweating on the dance floor while shedding tears reminiscing about your life and all its splendor.
Please stream their music so they can carry on the American dream by traveling the world, spreading their musical seed, and buying more guitar pedals & synths they don’t need.
