Covering a tremendous amount of sonic ground under the stage name Yalls, Dan Casey has deviated away from his past indie rock projects, and has gravitated toward upbeat synth-pop. Californian singer-songwriter and self-proclaimed pop experimentalist, Yalls experiments with electronic songwriting, establishing a style that's hard to put your finger on. Casey's approach can be described as quirky, tropical-tinged and prolific, and "Preta" exemplifies a healthy balance of those fundamental and distinguishing terms.
Released off of Gold Robot Records on April 2, Yalls' most recent musical offering is an EP titled The Voice, where "Preta" originates. Encompassing vocal-led melodies, plush electronic hooks and experimental loops, Casey continues to prove his ever-changing progressionfrom a funkier sound prominent on his premier July 2011 album release of Yalls.
Yalls' poignant talent isn't limited to online airplay, as Casey translates his energy and soul into live performances as well. This Californian has memorably graced the stage with the likes of Grimes, Neon Indian and Shlohmo after a mere three years of being immersed in the electronic pop scene.
