For the Syd tha Kyd and Matt Martian of The Internet, it was out with the trippy and in with the funky. Their latest single, titled “Dontcha,” features a delicate, soulful and sexy Syd over a bouncy drum line and a deep bass groove. The track serves as the blog-o-sphere’s first official taste of their sophomore album, “Feel Good,” due at the end of this month.

Syd’s vocals still come across as laidback, but are more definitive and don’t shy away from Matt’s soundscape, which had a little production boost from Chad Hugo and Mike Einziger. A year ago, very few would place Syd’s vocal capabilities alongside words like “sultry” and “sexy,” but a track like this might force many to think twice about it.

On the production front, Syd Tweeted to fans that this project is a 180-degree flip from the duo’s original electronic sound, and that it was slated to be a funk and neo-soul album – notarizing a quick maturation in their musical direction.
