Singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Dylan Kidd is back with the new music! His move from New Orleans to Los Angeles explains his subtle shift in style–from progressive, jazz-influenced instrumentals to bombastically funky summer pop hits. We’re humbled to premiere Dylan Kidd’s latest project, the five-track Try EP, which does much to showcase his newly realized penchant for songwriting and singing.
Dylan Kidd’s new music succeeds in making himself more vulnerable and more comprehensive than ever before. Echoing Steve Lacy‘s unique style of R&B-aligned guitar pop, these songs are perfect for enjoying a cool, unbothered summertime. “right here” is the silkiest of these summer R&B ballads, made more irresistible by supremely funky drum fills that fuck with your head in the best possible way.
