The Internet (2018)
THE INTERNET absolutely stole the show when they last played Laneway Festival and they’ve only gotten bigger, better and sexier since. On their third album, the game-changing, Grammy-nominated Ego Death (2015), the Odd Future offshoot truly came into their own.

Then to everybody’s surprise, they went out on their own. Front-woman Syd shared her intricate, soulful debut album Fin (she is an undeniable star in her own right) and Matt Martians dropped his funk-infused solo endeavor The Drum Chord Theory. The band’s 18 year-old guitar whiz Steve Lacy is also a highly sought-after hip hop producer (he’s worked with J Cole & Kendrick Lamar) who records everything on his iPhone. This year he shared Steve Lacy’s Demo, a dazzling 6 song release bursting with ideas. We loved them all in equal measure, but tbh we can’t wait for their next record (expected asap) as a team. Hear it first at Laneway 2018!
