To describe Underwear as anything other than an otherworldly, out of body experience would undersell the project. Absolutely broken R&B rhythms slink underneath crooning vocals and glitched electronic bursts of white noise, creating the sense of an alternate timeline in which the broken technologies of a time recently past somehow became autonomous and captured a forgotten pop star. Moments of cohesion underscore the confusion. The lore around the project has already started to grow: stories of the time Underwear’s drum machine (his main instrument) broke but he kept playing for another ten minute swirl around the New Haven underground. I guess what I’m trying to say is that this project is weird and it’s the closest I’ll come to releasing a dance record ever so enjoy it while you can.
