The Internet performed at this weekend’s annual Afro Punk Festival in Brooklyn, New York. The soulful funk band, contains Odd Future members Syd the Kyd and Matt Martians. Their first project, “Purple Naked Ladies,” released in 2011, is the first album released under Odd Future Records. What makes this group so ironically energizing, is their ability to boost the level of chill vibes with their music. Much like the aura of Odd Future, The Internet is not about creating an image, they are simple in that they are expressing themselves through music. This can be felt in their music video Dontcha. This video is a simple black and white video, with Syd steadily jamming as the band plays in the back. No fancy edits. No fancy angles. No fancy outfits; just simplicity in the music. The awkwardness of Syd the Kyd makes the band more alluring, as everyone can relate to being that awkward kid in the room; that awkward kid with an amazing hidden talent.
Check them out for yourselves! You will not be disappointed. The Internet provides tunes for those who are in the mood of a romantic, chill evening with a little added funk in the moonlight, which I’m pretty sure everyone would love! Here’s their soundcloud, go get you some of that Internet.
