Les Sins – “Talk About”

Les Sins – “Talk About”

Chaz Bundick has won over so many with his Toro y Moi project by executing several takes on seemingly-lethargic electronic pop.  He’s been a chillwave pioneer, a curator of R&B, and has even been known to dabble in shaggy-carpet funk.  What happens when he decides to take these various hats, make more dance-friendly vibes, and get a little weird?  Les Sins is what happens.

In the past few years, we’ve heard a few tracks from the fairly mysterious project, but November 4 will see the release of Michael, his first LP under the Les Sins moniker.  The album’s opener, “Talk About” is a fast beat with a wavering, swelling house melody.

Bundick’s always had an ear for multiple electronic genres, but hearing them come together so seamlessly in this track confirms that this will be like nothing we’ve heard from him yet.  Listen to “Talk About” here.
