Instupendo bursts into 2019 with a fresh ‘Persona’
Fresh on the heels of a feature on Toro Y Moi‘s newest LP, Instupendo wastes no time in debuting his first original of 2019. “Persona” sees the NY-based, Philadelphia-bred producer reexamine the sound that originally put him on the map, while simultaneously exploring new techniques to freshen his approach.
Released by Urban Outfitters as a part of their New Sounds Series, “Persona’s” light, wandering melody will invoke feelings of nostalgia for longtime fans. The track’s second half offers added experimentation, with re-sampled effervescence and a fuzzy bass keeping the listener committed.
Following a fall spent on tour in support of like-minded counterparts, Ryan Hemsworth and Giraffage, and hints at a new direction evident in “Persona,” Instupendo is poised to continue his upward swing well into 2019.
