This week, the duo of Matt Martians and Syd The Kyd aka The Internet have premiered the first single from their upcoming project, “Feel Good”.
The black and white video for ‘Dontcha’ keeps things simple with a funky jam session from the band, featuring blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameos by N.E.R.D’s Chad Hugo and Incubus guitarist Mike Einziger. Word on the street is, these two big names co-produced the single. Wow.
Beyond the awkward stance and dancing of Syd The Kyd, the song is not that bad. In fact, I kinda like it.
I admit I am a little surprised though – the girl can sing! I’ve heard music from The Internet before but ‘Dontcha’ really focuses and draws you in, making you notice Syd’s pipes.
Soft, wispy, angelic and endearing, Syd’s vocals against the psychadelic soulful production brings together a tune that I wouldn’t mind listening to again…and again.
