The Internet – February 2016
In association with Laneway Presents, Thump, RRR and FBi.
R&B/neo-soul outfit THE INTERNET have got to be the most seductive Odd Future offshoot to date – just listen to Girl ft. Kaytradana for proof.
The L.A based band released their third album Ego Death in July this year, to uniformly excellent reviews and praise from media and fans alike. Singer/producer Syd the Kid sings about honesty, love, lust and the warm Californian breeze, her sultry voice sailing over co-producer Matt Martians’ slinking bass lines and luscious guitar/synth melodies. Live, THE INTERNET are a six-person outfit sure to lull you into a blissed-out smooth soul dream.
THE INTERNET will be supported by rising local star, Melbourne based singer-songwriter and musician JAALA. Check out her latest cut, the highly innovative track Salt Shaker here.
