Los Angles Singer-Songerwriter Syd, is the center of the collective, The Internet.Earlier in January she announced she was going to release her debut album. Going into this project I had no expectations and I was excited to hear this. Was this a flop, or did she live up to the hype ?
From beginning to end, Syd projects a classic 90’s R&B, differentiating from her sound with The Internet. Fin is full of slow, seductive songs with layered production. Bennet’s vocals demand your attention, and while she’s not the most amazing vocalist her singing is very pleasing. The sole feature from 6lack is a nice added touch, while I enjoyed his feature I felt as though it wasn’t needed.
Everything about this project blew me away. Syd’s vocals are smoothe and easy to listen to, coupled with her amazing song-writing abilities, the outcome is a dope project. Syd blossoms on this record and shows people she is a force to be reckoned with. I had no idea what I was going to get with this project. After each listen I liked it more and more. I have no gripes with this album, Every song transitions into the next track smooth and effortlessly. Fin showcases her ability to stand on her own and her versatility. I only wish that this project was longer, it felt as though some of these tracks could have been longer. Fin is a great listen regardless
