Lil Zubin talks junior high cover bands, Working On Dying convincing him he could be a lead singer, Covid helping him concentrate on his career, and performs title track “Perfect Hell” off his upcoming EP live in studio
Lil Zubin is someone I’ve wanted to have on the show a few years now. From his string of solo EPs, to his work with Misery Club, and now If I Die First, Zubin’s output as a singer has been widely varied in style and genre. His “Misery” EP is up there with some of my favorite EPs released in the decade. But he got off to a late start vocally. Zubin didn’t make his foray into lead vocalist until a few years ago, even though he’s been in bands since he was 12 years old.
His upcoming project with Yawns titled “Perfect Hell” finds him veering away from the atmospheric R&B sonics of previous solo endeavors and leaning into goth, rock, and 80s influences. Been riding for Zubin since Nedarb put me on some years back, and am excited to watch “Perfect Hell” push him further into the limelight.
Tune in to hear us talk about junior high cover bands, Working On Dying convincing him he could be a lead singer, and Covid helping him concentrate on his career.
