Single Review – BAIO – The Names

The Vampire Weekend bassist Chris Baio has already excelled himself as a solo artist with the already released singles from his upcoming debut The Names. The three tracks unveiled so far have been dynamic and varied instrumentally, vocally and in terms of structure and production. With the new release in the title track you begin to detect a hint of consistency as he combines those rhythmic tones with a creative production that has featured in all of his singles in isolation, but here it is combined with a great results. The intermittent, nudging beats paly off the warped, whirring synths as Baio’s skipping vocal goes on to echo on across the instrumentation. With this track he is able to form a delicate and considered dance track using his rhythmic sensibility and his skill behind the controls.
