After giving us information on his upcoming project Indra through tweets and an AMA on Reddit, Vritra drops the very first single titled Tea & Lemonade. If that wasn’t enough, we also get the first look at the album cover, a full tracklist, as well as a release date.
Expect Indra to drop February 18th, 2014 courtesy of Stones Throw. Stream the new track down below to get a sneak peek of what’s to come.
22 year-old, LA-based Pyramid Vritra has been making beats and writing rhymes since he was just ten years old. When he was in high school in Atlanta, he founded the hip hop collective NRK (Nobody Really Knows) and subsequently linked up with Matt Martians of Odd Future after Martians heard NRK’s tracks on Myspace. When Pyramid Vritra and Matt Martians met, they naturally clicked and the collaborations began. They formed The Super 3 production group, and soon after, he and Martians formed the Jet Age of Tomorrow releasing their music via Odd Future.
During the day Pyramid Vritra drives a forklift around a home improvement store in South Los Angeles. His co-workers have no idea he makes music, he says ‘he tries to not talk to anyone there.’ Introverted in nature, Pyramid Vritra allows us to find out a bit about him through his debut 16-track record, Indra. The album swings in and out of darkness and highlights Pyramid Vritra’s knack for rhyming and making obscure beats – all sample free. – Stones Throw
