Los Angeles hip hop soul band, THE INTERNET, absolutely stole the show when they last played at Laneway Festival and they’ve only gotten bigger, better and sexier since. On their third album, the game-changing, Grammy-nominated Ego Death (2015), the Odd Future offshoot truly came into their own. Then to everybody’s surprise, they went out on their own. Front-woman Syd shared her intricate, soulful debut album, Fin and Matt Martians dropped his funk-infused solo endeavour, The Drum Chord Theory. The band’s 18-year-old guitar whiz, Steve Lacy, is also a highly sought-after hip-hop producer, who has worked with J Cole and Kendrick Lamar, recording everything on his iPhone. This year he shared Steve Lacy’s Demo, a dazzling six-song release bursting with ideas.
We love them all in equal measure, but we can’t wait for their next record as a team. Hear it first at Laneway 2018!
