I first caught a listen of ‘So Insane’ and thought instantly of my friend Chris (who sings for a fun band of his own). Chris likes prepped-up indie pop. At the same time, dude grew up on Blackstreet and whatnot and I won’t deny having bonded with him over some Ne-Yo and Chris Brown in the past.
I figured if anyone had heard this — an electro-R&B side-project between Vampire Weekends Rostam Batmanglij and Wes Miles of Ra Ra Riot — it would definitely have been him. Turns out he hadn’t. So, maybe you haven’t either. Some beautiful weather this weekend, and I’ve been waking up to this every day.
