Odd Future’s R&B sextet the Internet turned in an excellent album in last year’s Ego Death. The groovy, bass-heavy body of work is very infectious, especially with Syd Tha Kyd at the helm bringing an undeniable swag through her delicate vocals. It’s weird to think of them as a part of Odd Future, especially since they have evolved so much since the collective’s early videos burning shopping carts and brandishing fake guns. The Internet have truly come into their own sound and aesthetic since 2011’s Feel Good.
Today, they drop a video combining the smooth, slick “Special Affair,” the ’90s R&B-leaning “Curse”, and a short segment of the Tyler, The Creator-assisted “Palace.” The “Special Affair” portion of the video is a black and white basement party in slow mo with plenty of weed, liquor, and good vibes to go around. The “Curse” section is a hazy, revolving color one-shot with the band taking turns on each other’s instruments giving each member a chance to step into the forefront and deliver Syd’s lyrics. Tyler, The Creator comes on to deliver his opening verse for a quick cameo on “Palace” before a VHS effect kicks in and the video cuts abruptly to end. Check it out.
Ego Death is out now.
