deathbypeanuts (@deathbypeannuts) is an anonymous producer and multi-instrumentalist based in the burgeoning creative city of Berlin, Germany. Not too long ago, he released his groovy debut single, “Cold As Usual,” a collaboration with R&B vocalist, Merōn (@meroneymaarey), via Lekker Collective.
deathbypeanuts & Merōn – “Cold As Usual” single
“The idea for ‘Cold As Usual’ was to capture the honesty of the situation, rather than dressing it up with unnecessary sentiment or cliches. Thematically, ‘Cold As Usual’ is about those moments when relationships get frosty, and I wanted it to resonate with anyone who’s ever felt that same emotional distance, without sugarcoating it. That’s what makes this song real and relatable to us.” – Merōn explained
deathbypeanuts’ talent in crafting immersive soundscapes, coupled with Merōn’s silky falsetto is the perfect blend of tasteful sonic elements. The captivating, understated production subtly supports the vocals, without threatening to overwhelm or overpower.
“Cold As Usual” also contains an intimate narrative, tuneful melodies, and ear-pleasing vocals that will resonate well with fans of Lucky Daye, Xavier Omär, and Leven Kali. Unsure of what the future holds, Merōn sings with great passion to his significant other, “I don’t know what to do, I feel like we are further from the truth, no matter what step I try to take, my dear, all you send is trouble along my way.”
“We wrote ‘Cold As Usual’ during the summer of 2022. This demo idea was lying around from my time in London with Ben Esser, where I made it for an artist who ended up wanting a more hip-hop direction. We shelved it, but I ended up sending it to Merōn. We met up in the studio and the rest is history. I was listening to Gwen Bunn’s ‘2MANYTHINGS’ on repeat at that time, and I wanted to bring a bit of that same warm energy into my own production.” – deathbypeanuts explained
deathbypeanuts might be a new moniker to take note of, but is by no means a newbie to the music world, releasing with Kelvyn Colt, Chris James, Noah Slee, Beau Diako, Marie Dahlstrom, Sipprell, Teesy, Marie Bothmer, Chefket, J.Lamotta (Jakarta Records) and more. His moniker alludes to his deathly peanut allergy.
A classically trained pianist, deathbypeanuts’ teen years saw him swivel to contemporary jazz piano and bass guitar, before kicking off his music career at 17 as a touring musician. He has since shared stages with names such as The Black Eyed Peas, CRO, Lena Meyer Landrut, Namika, Max Giesinger, and SCHMYT. The pandemic saw him take his first steps as a producer and songwriter.
