Steve Lacy is a new wave music artist making a really serious dent in today’s R&B and funk scene. His rise to the top has actually been pretty swift. After being part of Syd the Kid’s much-respected band, The Internet, he proceeded to carve out a niche for himself with strong performances, a distinct sound, and a unique fashion style.
His debut album, Apollo XXI dropped this year, and it definitely drew some Prince comparisons, due to its funk-heavy, guitar-inflected sound. “Playground” is one of the top gems on the album, and the just-released video is one of the best things you’ll see online all day.
