Being Dead


Being Dead came upon the scene in Austin, TX five years ago with their distinctly right-brain songcraft, mischievous humor, and implausibly great vocal harmonies. Even as they’ve graduated from curiosity to cult favorites, I’ve yet to encounter a single person who dislikes Being Dead. The garagey psychedelic outsider pop band should be considered in the same category as rainbows and finding $60 in the pocket of a winter coat: incontrovertibly lovable.

Being Dead is recommended if you like Devo, the Pixies, the Beets, Violent Femmes, or living your life like it’s an ungraded art project. Bayonet Records welcomed them to the team December 2022.
