What would you expect hear when you listen to a song titled “My Body’s A Zombie For You”? The grunt of a heavy-metal band or the whine of an emo cry baby? Luckily, you get neither. Instead you get the ’50s sound of Dead Man’s Bones: Zach Shields and Ryan Gosling (yeah, the Oscar-nominated actor). The waltz-style track features the Silverlake Conservatory Children’s Choir, giving the song its creepy-yet-dreamy quality. “My Body’s A Zombie For You” sounds like nothing else around today. Dead Man’s Bones’ self-titled debut album will be out October 6 on Anti-.
