Vampire Weekend's Baio - "Tanto"


It's not only Rostam Batmanglijthat's making music outside the band that made him famous. Now Chris Baio, Vampire Weekend's bassist, is churning out Summer-appropriate tracks. His first offering is a joyous, Balearic number called "Tanto" featuring underground house stalwart Matias Aguayo. The track came with this inscription: We make colourful music because we dance in the dark. You'll find that it's fitting:

Baio will release a solo EP of "colourful music" called Sunburn on May 21 through Joe Goddard (of Hot Chip)'s label Greco-Roman. Check out the tracklist below:
