Winter in Canada is time to get away, and Toronto artist Death by Tapioca has some adventurous destinations in mind.
On “Airtime,” he swings from one scenic location to the next including the luminous Tokyo skyline and natural settings of New Zealand.
Over a bounce-heavy instrumental by producer JU$TUNLTD, Death by Tapioca’s laidback flow and quirky wordplay detail picturesque mountain settings, ziplining, ocean views and snorkeling.
After two years in a pandemic with major travel limitations, “Airtime” is the inspiration listeners need to pull out the sunscreen and book a spontaneous flight.

About Death by Tapioca:
Death by Tapioca is a lighthearted, fun-seeking Iranian-Canadian who was raised between Eastern hospitality and Western pop culture. By tapping into influences ranging from ancient Persian poets to present-day legends of Toronto’s slam scene, his love for both thoughtful rap (Kendrick Lamar, Nas) and K-pop stan culture (TWICE, Mamamoo, Red Velvet), Death by Tapioca channels east-meets-west identity into a sound that could play alongside KYLE, Amine, and Lil Dicky in a 2-on-2 beer pong match.
