The Internet is a soul band created by producer Matt Martians and lead vocalist Syd “The Kyd” of Odd Future. The two met via Myspace in 2008, and later became good friends when Matt moved from Atlanta to Los Angeles in February of 2011. They began their first project together in May of that year, and by December had released it as a full-length album entitled Purple Naked Ladies.

Originally, Matt and Syd planned to release Purple Naked Ladies for free with very little promotion, and they never planned on performing it live. But after being persuaded by management to take the project more seriously, the two decided to release the album under Odd Future Records, making it the first album to be released under the label. To take the pressure off of Matt and Syd on stage, the duo teamed up with some of Syd’s old friends, Patrick Paige II (bass), Christopher Allan Smith (drums), and Tay Walker (keys) and turned The Internet into a band—a band that has in one year performed over 60 shows in North America and Europe.

The Internet recently released their second LP, a soul album entitled Feel Good, on September 24th through Odd Future Records. The sultry instrumentals are complemented by heartfelt lyrics from Syd and guest vocalists such as Yuna and Mac Miller. Together these parts coalesce to present a fuller, more dynamic sound that has evolved and matured significantly since their debut album. Ultimately, you’ll witness a group of good friends having a great time creating something they hope will stand the test of timeless music.
