The mercury may be rising, but Sid Sriram‘s still shivering on the inside. Why? As the singer, songwriter and producer puts it on the lead single off his next EP, making its world premiere on our front page, he’s got a “Winter Mind.” (In layman’s terms, that’s a chronically heavy heart.) As usual, the Bay Area native mans the mixing boards as well as the mic, chronicling his struggle against his melancholy disposition over a self-produced blend of methodical percussion, icy keys and vocoded bass. This lush, atmospheric jam is just one of many fresh cuts to be found on Before Dusk, the DJBooth-hosted first half of his West Coast Nightfall EP series. Watch for the project to hit our front page April 17, for free streaming and digital download.
