Glitchy and melodic, this track is from Varsity Star’s upcoming EP, “That’s Something”. Said VS: “I recorded this with vintage analog synths, drum samples, and my childhood home’s piano.” The artist is a Brooklyn-based electronic musician. Growing up in the suburbs of Boston, he played jazz through college until deciding he would be more comfortable making music by himself.
As legend has it:
After a biblical flea infestation in his apartment, he fled to Berlin in 2017 and recorded his first full-length, Model Home, playing gigs in basements, a Danish church, and a few legitimate venues in Brooklyn. In 2020, he’s back in Brooklyn and mostly pest-free, having released is latest record, “Things Look Better from Far Away, and gearing up for a slew of shorter form releases to follow.
‘Headphones Kid’ is another continuing extension of what Varsity Star brings to the proverbial table. Enticing, voluptuous, up-ending, and radical – the pitch and yaw of the songs, vibe against the delight of the universe, to and fro, with no end in joy.
