Sisyphus – Calm It Down

Sisyphus is a group made up of Sufjan Stevens, Son Lux, and Serengeti, all artists I’ve (probably unjustly) neglected thus far, but this track immediately got my attention. It fuses hip-hop, electronic, and indie music in a pretty seamless way. It’s catchy, has a fun beat, and manages to work as a light almost-dancey pop number and a groovy indie track for just kicking it. My only criticism is that at the end, when it tries to get a bit more sentimental by dropping everything but the vocals and piano, it feels a bit hokey. Anyway, it’s a fun song for all you college kids out there.
