Billy Cobb took the internet by storm in 2020 with his Weezer-inspired Zerwee albums, amassing millions of streams off their success. Those who follow Billy’s music would quickly learn just how multifaceted of a musician he is, with influences ranging from pop punk to emo to noise rock to folk and sea shanties. Needlejuice Records took to releasing two albums by Billy Cobb in 2021 which showcase that wide array of influences. Billy Cobb’s The S.S. Krill is a gay pirate opera. Running through just about every type of sea shanty, the album carries you through the waves of Johnny and Joel’s relationship, one yearning for the land and one yearning for the sea. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll love. You’ll die.
