The Internet was discovered on Sunday afternoon at Fun Fun Fun Fest at the blue stage, and it was magnificent.

The Internet, an experimental soul band, branched out of the large hip-hop collective, Odd Future, which is led by Tyler, The Creator and includes many artists including Frank Ocean and Earl Sweatshirt.

The Internet is comprised of lead vocalist Syd Bennett, Matthew Martin on the synth pad, both of whom are also a part of Odd Future. It also features Patrick Paige II on bass, Christopher Allan Smith playing the drums, and Jameel Bruner on the lead synth. For their live performance, the band had a second drummer stationed at the back of the stage, adding texture and rhythm to keep things tight and fill in holes that come with playing live.

Throughout the set, it was obvious that Bennett, also known as Syd the Kyd, and the rest of the band were having a good time at FFFF. Bennett laughed with her bandmates and casually talked to the crowd in between songs.

The crowd was small enough to hear an audience member’s proclamation, “We love you, Syd!” She laughed and replied, “I love you guys too!”

The band’s easygoing way of performing their set must have been infectious because the crowd’s smiles never seemed to fade. The Internet’s sound is groovy and funky, featuring a heavy bass and light, breezy vocals from Bennett.

Before The Internet ended their set, Bennett said to the crowd, “This is our last song, so I’ll need you all to turn up real good.”

They then launched into “Dontcha,” a crowd-pleasing song that had the audience dancing and clapping to the fun and syncopated beat. If their performance at FFFF this year is any indication, The Internet is definitely a band to watch out for in the future.
