cropped-img_9893.jpgStatic Friend is the project of Zac Haluza, a Shanghai-based musician and translator.

Informed by the same restless spirit that inspired Haluza to shift his surroundings from New Jersey to China, the music of Static Friend is a mercurial mix of heavy rock, electronica and ambient.

Static Friend’s debut album, Trust Everyone, blends influences that include Rush, Deadmau5, Depeche Mode, Deftones, and Nine Inch Nails into a concise 11-track package. Recorded in New Jersey and southern China, Trust Everyone is an exploration into what it means to be home.
