Vampire Weekend's Baio Drops 'The Names'

Chris Baio, best known as of yet for being the bassist for Vampire Weekend, has released the title track for his new album The Names. The song is warm and intimate, yet it preserves an atmospheric element; it brushes the edges of dream-pop without fully indulging itself. Instead, the track uses a clean, skidding beat and carefully controlled echoes to create a delicate yet powerful sound. The song is a perfect late-summer release - it's doubtlessly a dance track, but with Baio's vocals gently and effortlessly raking itself up and down the octaves and rocking, slightly melancholy synths, the song is able to use all of its elements to create narrative and sensation.

Baio's solo album The Names will be out on September 18th.
