Listen to Vampire Weekend Bassist Chris Baio's EP <i>Sunburn</i>

Chris Baio, who usually provides basslines to Vampire Weekend songs, took his first foray into a solo career with a three-track EP titled Sunburn. The songs are only a brief glimpse into Baio’s musical tastes as the EP detours from Vampire Weekend’s college-friendly aura and explores more electronic and tribal beats with a mixture of choral voices thrown in for good measure.

“Tanto” features a collaboration with Chilean producer and vocalist (and former member of Closer Musik), Matias Aguayo, which proves to be one of the EP’s strongest tracks. Baio will take his newly crafted electronica for a brief stint in Europe with a few dates in Italy, Spain and the U.K.
