Rome and Duddy release Cactus Cool EP
Together they made history with collaborating on the Dirty Heads’ 2008 smash hit “Lay Me Down” as the first track from an indie label to reach #1 on Billboard’s Rock Songs chart, in addition to holding steady as number one on the Alternative Songs chart for 11 weeks.
Now Rome & Duddy are about to make history again with a brand new joint EP called “Cactus Cool“. The two California duo boarded themselves in a cabin in the woods to block out the outside world as they jammed, and write a fresh batch of tracks. The new music combines all of Rome & Duddy’s musical influences into a melting pot while adding their own special sauce.
“SO THERE WAS A LOT OF FREEDOM WITH THIS PROJECT. KIND OF LIKE STARTING OVER, THERE ARE NO RULES. JUST DO WHATEVER YOU WANT AND FIGURE OUT A NEW SOUND AND I THINK WE DID.”
Cactus Cool was produced by Vance Powell (Jack White, Phish) and Leroy Powell (Sturgill Simpson). It was also composed in a mountain cabin in Idyllwild, California. The frontmen duo, who also host The Rome and Duddy Show on the Consequence Podcast Network, previously teased the upcoming project in an Origins interview for the debut single, “Cannabis Tree.” “We aimed to merge our loves of Reggae, Americana, country, and folk into new original music,” they said. “Something familiar yet new and exciting.”
