Dale and the ZDubs return with “Her Melody Feat. HIRIE"

Dale and the ZDubs

New single “Her Melody

Washington D.C. based Dale and the ZDubs are back with an infectious feel-good summer reggae rock meets pop banger “Her Melody”. The single features reggae pop icon and songstress HIRIE, who infuses the song with her captivating pop brilliance. Riding high on a wave of vocal bliss, the single ruminates on the essence of the honeymoon phase, where you just can’t get enough of someone.

“Her Melody Feat. HIRIE" is anthemic to the reggae-rock scene with shockwave percussion, rhythmic strokes of electric guitar, and a vocal dynamic that lures you in with mellow poise and undeniable chemistry. This single celebrates lead singer Dale Rodman’s release from a three year prison sentence for a non-violent drug crime, and it’s certainly a comeback as he graces the hypnotic track with his smooth and powerful vocals. “Her Melody” is filled with surf-riding sonics and relatable lyrics that plunge into the depths of human connection.

Dale and the ZDubs' impressive live circuit has led them to perform alongside artists including BALLHYOO!, Badfish – a tribute to Sublime, Little Stranger, Kash’d Out, Joe Samba, and Artikal Sound System and more. “Her Melody feat. HIRIE" is their latest release, announcing to the world that Dale and the ZDubs are back, and better than ever.

From prison to pandemic, Dale and the ZDubs are back in full force. Inspired by Dale’s 2017 to 2020 incarceration for a non-violent drug crime, DZD’s recent releases combine a distinct reggae influence intertwined with a hard-hitting rock style to tell raw, ridiculous, and vulnerable stories.

After the 3 year hiatus, Dale, Miles, Johan, Pat, and Julian went to work during quarantine to put instrumentation and melody behind the lyrics Dale wrote on the inside. Dale also hit up some old friends to be part of the comeback. The result is the current stream of saucy singles including “This Time” feat. The Elovaters, “Pathological” feat. Bumpin Uglies, and of course, "Her Melody" feat. HIRIE.

DZD’s absolute obsession with performing live is the catalyst of their continuously heavy tour schedule (if Dale isn’t in prison and/or the world isn’t ending). DZD has recently shared the stage with the likes of BALLHYOO!, Badfish – a tribute to Sublime, Little Stranger, Kash’d Out, Joe Samba, and Artikal Sound System. High-energy live shows feature multi-part vocal harmonies, along with thick guitar driven melodies. And sometimes Dale gets pretty close to naked.
