If you’ve been around Malmö the last few years, chances are you’ve come across the Nike spoof sticker ‘just död it’ a few times. This has become the mantra of the Swedish duo Död, made up of Benjamin Syra and Jurko Haltuu (the latter has relocated to Atlanta). So it’s about time they used it for a release, and voila, here’s their third album for Opal Tapes. On Just Död It, which was recorded during 2020, they bring their ironic approach to the effects of the pandemic, resulting in their usual bleak mix of dark ambient and noise. It’s not long since their last album We Put the Fun In Funeral came out local label Sound+Matter, but this one focuses on shorter compositions in more a traditional form, like “Life-Eternal”.
