Set It Off step up with a defiant, diverse, and dynamic deconstruction of alternative music. The Los Angeles trio—Cody Carson [vocals], Zach DeWall [guitar], and Maxx Danziger [drums]—bob and weave between swaggering riffs, electronic transmissions, hip-hop attitude, and pure prowess. This unassuming playlist-busting spirit reaffirms their status as an under-the-radar phenomenon with a staggering 1.4 million monthly listeners on Spotify and acclaim from Medium and more.
Formed in 2008, the group’s quiet ascension would be earmarked by one milestone after another. 2014 saw Duality bow in the Top 20 of the Billboard Independent Albums Chart.

As of 2019, their catalog consists of “Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing” [feat. William Beckett] (63.4 million Spotify streams), “Why Worry” (30 million Spotify streams), “Partners In Crime” [feat. Ash Costello] (26.1 million Spotify streams), and “The Haunting (20 million Spotify streams), to name a few. Along the way, they also transformed audiences into believers on tour with All Time Low, Simple Plan, Sleeping With Sirens, and more.
