For Logo Design, I choose Zombie and Equalizer style, because I have seen many skulls and headphones styles.
Now, I do know about Music Equalizer styles, but I did some research about Zombie. (A Zombie is a fictional undead being created through the reanimation of a human corpse. Zombies are most commonly found in horror and fantasy genre works. The term comes from Haitian folklore, where a zombie is a dead body reanimated through various methods, most commonly magic)
I needed something which is common in all Zombies and after research, I found that the walking style is common in all of them. A Zombie walks in a irregular style. They walk out of step, they do not have a pattern in their walking like a normal human does, steps are uneven and awkward. They are simply inconsistent.
But Music does have consistency and repetition.
I need to incorporate both Inconsistency and Consistency in my logo, I began with exploring typefaces which are inconsistent in their formation like shapes and have irregularity but do look consistent overall and I found the typeface 'Bahiana Regular' for the logo. For the icon, I extracted the straight shapes from the word 'DEADBEAT' written in the typeface 'Bahiana Regular' and represented them as Equalizer styles in a geometric circle.
For color, I choose green with 2 neutral colors black and white. Green because it represents Life, Refreshment, Energy and that's what music does too, it gives energy and refreshment to the listener.
