Odd Future's Syd and Matt Martian Form "The Internet." Hear Their First Song Here
Looks like a Brick Stowell
On Friday Tyler, the Creator unleashed his alter ego, Young Nigga, a funny Lil B soundalike who's into overpriced carbs.
But that wasn't all Odd Future had up its sleeve this weekend. At midnight last night another of the collective's subgroups called The Internet -- made up of Syd and one of our favorite producers, Matt Martian of the Super 3 -- released their first track, called "Love Song -1-2."
Gorgeous, and clocking in at a slim minute and thirty-three seconds, the song has an electro-soul vibe reminiscent of Quadron. Syd sounds like a close cousin of the Dutch duo's singer, Coco.

The only other song (to our knowledge) that features Syd, "Flashlight," is lightly Auto-Tuned, stripping her voice of its gentle warmth.
Syd in a leading role is especially surprising given her seeming reluctance so far to step into the spotlight; it even looks as if she's deleted her Twitter account.
Oh, and ever wonder why they say Syd got bitches? Here's your answer.
