D.A. - Glowing / Farm

Feels Like: Elton John, Paul McCartney, David Bowie

D.A. is one half of Chester French, a band that had Pharell's seal of approval yet has always seemed to bubble right below the surface. They did have a number of pretty great songs though. Well now he's striking out on his own and the results lean less on the throwback dance stylings of Chester French and instead dive headfirst into Elton John-style balladry. Usually this move wouldn't work, but D.A. is one talented dude. Tyler the Creator even directed the video for "Glowing" and in typical Odd Future fashion, it's extremely colorful with tiny, twisted elements that keep it just enough off-kilter.
