The Internet’s Syd Continues To Showcase Her Amazing Talent On Her Latest Solo Release (Audio)
While Tyler, The Creator was the first from Odd Future to have breakout success, the talent in the collective has proven to be deep and diverse. From Earl Sweatshirt to Frank Ocean, there is no pinning down the loose group of artists that stormed onto the scene in 2001. As an entity Odd Future covered Hip-Hop to Soul and everything in between. Talented group The Internet, fronted by Syd (fka Syd tha Kyd) and Matt Martians, represented the latter sound, infusing the live instrumentation and deep Soul of groups like The Brand New Heavies and Groove Theory. The Internet have been relatively quiet over the last 12 month, after releasing their stellar album Ego Death in June of 2015, but Syd has remained active with select solo records and some standout features on tracks like Kaytranada’s “You’re The One.” Today, Syd returns with another song, aptly-titled “Amazing.”
As with a number of Syd’s songs, “Amazing” concerns matters of the heart. Produced by Dornik, Syd sings about an infatuation she has with a woman that has multiple suitors, articulating her frustrations with having to fight for her affections. Throughout, she states her case for why she’s the one who’s best for this amazing woman.
