Chiddy Bang – Ray Charles

January 10, 2012

Chiddy Bang seems like one of those groups that could only exist in today’s internet age – instead of sampling old vinyl, they sample the latest in indie rock, from MGMT to Passion Pit to Radiohead (and let’s not forget Grizzly Bear and Sufjan and Hockey in there as well). After several successful mixtape releases (and a pretty great guest appearance on Big Sean’s Finally Famous earlier in the year), it seems the duo have finally locked down a real record deal with their debut album coming this year. Their first single, “Ray Charles,” eschews their rock-leaning sampling style for a more traditional “soul” kick, but with a definite Chiddy Bang twist. Enjoy getting the chorus immediately stuck in your head – it’s a catchy one.

Look for Breakfast to drop in February – until then, check out their website, Facebook, and Twitter for more information.
