We’ve seen The Internet band members Syd (Fin) and Matt Martians (The Drum Chord Theory) release their own solo projects over the first seven-plus weeks of the year so far. Guitarist (and singer) Steve Lacy will follow suit with A Song Series, and today, he shares the project’s second single, “Dark Red.”
This may be recency bias (because I’ve listened to it a ton), but “Big Red” reminds me of a more-refined song from Cody Chesnutt’s The Headphone Masterpiece. Led largely by drums and guitar strums, Lacy hums about an the potential loss of a love who could easily move onto better people. “Something bad is about to happen to me. Why I feel this way, I don’t know, baby,” he sings, casually blending folk and soul sounds into a preparation-for-the-worst-case-scenario situation.
