Journalism is a Brooklyn band fronted by Kegan Zema. Kegan recently staged a multimedia exhibit at the Bushwick, Brooklyn venue/collective Silent Barn, f which he is a member, called “American Icon” in which he, as “ZEMA,” took on the personas of David Bowie, Marilyn Monroe, and more. Musically, Journalism explores similar territory as the early 2000s wave of post-post-punk and garage rock, straddling the line between brooding and dancing, but Zema’s awareness and interest in musical and pop culture theory clearly influences his lyrics and the band’s performance. The group stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO to share a tune.
