Listen: Vampire Weekend Bassist Goes Solo on Dancey New Single

Now that his day job with Vampire Weekend is going so well—what with that No. 1 album Modern Vampires of the City and the sell-out arena tour, etc., etc.—bassist Chris Baio is preparing to release a new Baio solo EP, Mira, on October 28. In advance of its release, the bassist dropped the EP's title track, and it's a super-fun dance track with lo-fi club beats, trance-like synth atmospherics and laser-like sound warps. Who knew dude was so into DJing the next beachside rave in Thailand? This is like an excerpt from the soundtrack to Leonardo DiCaprio's The Beach. Listen above.
