Given his wildly innovative, inventive, and inimitable approach to indie dance, it wouldn’t be a surprise if singer/songwriter/producer/performer Robert DeLong actually hailed from a different universe. Encoded in his DNA, you’ll find strands of not only electronic, drum & bass, techno, house, moombahton, rock, and pop, but also the hard science fiction of writers such as Neal Stephenson and Greg Egan as well as the gonzo vision of David Lynch. In the span of a few seconds on stage, he’ll jump from orchestrating musical bliss via joystick to belting out a stadium-size hook on the mic.

 “I call what I do ‘hyper indie future pop’,” he smiles. “I’m a big proponent of furthering the fusion of technology and music, which goes hand-in-hand with the live show and how I produce.”

"I had been on the road constantly since 2012,” he recalls. “I was touring throughout the entire composition of In The Cards. I had no chance to reflect, so I took some time off. For me, I needed to collect myself and figure out where I wanted to go, what I wanted to write about, and what I wanted to do next. In the middle of this period, I started flying back out to L.A. for writing sessions. I quickly realized that’s where my life is. I’m more creatively connected in Los Angeles.  I have more friends who work on music. It’s the nexus of the industry. I felt the draw. It pulled me back in 2017. Immediately, all of these songs came together.”

Challenging himself, he switched up the process. Whereas 2013’s Just Movement would be a traditional solo effort and In The Cards featured a handful of collaborators, he fully welcomed fellow writers and producers into his creative orbit for what became new music for 2018 on Glassnote Records.
