#WHO: The Internet is a neo-soul/R&B/hip-hop/AMAZING, band that gives us good vibes and ever-bumping grooves. The group features former Odd Future members Syd the Kyd, Matt Martians, Jameel Bruner, Patrick Paige II, Christopher A. Smith, and Steve Lacy.
#WHY: Honestly, there’s no need to explain why because this group is just that sickening. There’s something about their sound that is strikingly nostalgic, but at the same time current, and very vital to the redefinition of black music today. Lead singer Syd the Kyd is something intoxicating as she sweetly and seductively addresses sexuality…. in a way that has you in the palms of her hands. They bump like hip-hop, croon like R&B, move like jazz, and infatuate like pop.
#WHAT’SNEW: The Internet has just released their third studio album “Ego Death” to critic acclaim, following albums “Feel Good” and “Purple Naked Ladies“. Their single “The Girl” feat. KAYTRANADA is one of my personal favorites, along with “Go with It” and “Special Affair”. The group has also released California tour dates, and seem to be gaining attention more and more. If you haven’t gotten hip yet, please do so NOW!
