Baio of Vampire Weekend released his solo debut album recently on Greco-Roman, and today he’s put on a bright music video to accompany the lead single. Tropical sunshine vibes, bikinis, and mannequins. How could you go wrong? Catch Baio in LA this August at HARD.
Chris Baio, bassist of Vampire Weekend, has just released his debut solo EP, Sunburn, this week on the mighty Greco-Roman imprint, and the 3-track release is blissful techy, tropical electronica in all its glory. Baio spent 2011 in a small studio in Brooklyn, taking influence from the urban culture around him which was projected into each of the three originals on Sunburn. He even teamed up with Chilean legend Matias Aguayo on ‘Tanto,’ where island-inspired percussion takes center stage and transports the listener to a mental paradise. √+ for this debut solo project.
