Published Mar 25, 2015Chillwave is dead. Long live chillwave. For his next Toro y Moi LP What For?, Chaz Bundick has veered into singer-songwriter territory. As evidenced on new track "Run Baby Run," it may have resulted in some of his strongest work yet.
The song's a sunny, sprightly pop track that's hardly tethered to a specific era or sound. Bundick's vocals take centre stage, and the song's built on shuffling drums, plucky acoustic guitars and dreamy atmospheric samples.
Listen to "Run Baby Run" below. What For? arrives on April 7 through Carpark Records.
