Catch up with Artist To Watch Robert DeLong in Buzzworthy’s exclusive Q&A.
We REALLY envy Seattle-born, L.A.-based Robert DeLong’s coordination. First off, the EDM performance artist typically has 15 to 20 instruments on stage with him AT ONE TIME, and he doesn’t have anybody else up there to, say, shake a tambourine or hit a cowbell. Nope, it’s just Robert up there alone, jumping up and down (literally), spinning dials, pressing buttons, drumming and singing, and utilizing everything from his laptop to game pads to a traditional guitar and snare. Not only has Robert proved his staying power with hook-happy songs like “Global Concepts” and “Change (How You Feel),” but he’s just unveiled a brand-new full-length album on Glassnote Records called Just Movement, featuring even more dancehall-ready pop/EDM/electro/rock/8-bit tracks. Now that we’re officially obsessed with Robert’s unusual Anamanaguchi-meets-Moby-meets-The Postal Service vibe, we decided to sit down with the Artist To Watch to talk about his electro-indie influences, Seattle background, and, well, whether or not Martians exist.
