The Internet has transcended past its usual neo-soul classification. The seminal band from Los Angeles has deftly curated music that represents multiple genres, including electronic, jazz, hip hop, and R&B. They recently ‘downloaded’ a few of their magnificent melodies, during a performance for NPR Music’s ‘Tiny Desk’ concert series. Audience members were treated to pure and intoxicating talent, as lead singer, Syd the Kid’s alluring vocals meshed seamlessly with her band’s lush instrumentation.
Starting with the sedate, yet bold, “Get Away,” Syd sang about staying grounded while enjoying guilty pleasures. Flexing her versatility, Syd’s voice morphed back and forth, from a feisty MC to a delicate songbird. Up next, Syd let it be known that she has things “Under Control,” as she performed a humble yet, confident ode to her band. Choosing to conserve their palpable energy, The Internet brought the set to a close with the stimulating groove, “Dontcha.”
Currently, on tour, The Internet’s third album, Ego Death is available now. Check out their performance below:
