BIO:
L.A.-based R&B band of Odd Future affiliates with a loose, live, and understated sound, led by multitasking musicians Syd tha Kyd and Matt Martians.

The group's nucleus is singer, songwriter, and engineer Sydney Bennett (aka Syd tha Kyd and simply Syd) and producer Matthew Martin (aka Matt Martians). Prior to the group's 2011 arrival, Bennett -- a native of Los Angeles' Crenshaw district -- produced tracks by Hodgy Beats, Domo Genesis, and Mike G. She also mixed Tyler, the Creator's Top Five hit album Goblin, provided vocals on a handful of its cuts, and recorded some low-key solo material. Martin, originally from East Point, Georgia, also had credits on OFWGKTA releases and operated as/with the Jet Age of Tomorrow and the Super 3.

Ego Death, issued in June 2015, boasted refined and yet characteristically frank songwriting from Bennett, as well as increased input from the group's additional members: bassist Patrick Paige II, guitarist Steve Lacy, drummer Christopher Allan Smith, and keyboardist Jameel Bruner. Guest appearances came from Janelle Monáe, Vic Mensa, and Kaytranada, the last of whom co-produced the lovelorn gem "Girl" with Bruner. While the group's two previous albums had registered on Billboard's Heatseekers chart, this one debuted within the Top Ten of Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and hit the top half of the all-genre Billboard 200. It affirmed the group's high standing in Los Angeles' vibrant community of young R&B, rap, jazz, and electronic acts.
