Indie-pop act Virginia To Vegas may sound like the name of a States-spanning musical duo, but its actually the brainchild of accomplished singer-songwriter Derik John Baker. The sought-out soloist, he co-wrote the DVBBS & Blackbear smash “IDWK,” is known for a lyrical prowess and electrifying vocal essentials all his own; both sharing the spotlight on latest single “Yesterday.”
First release in nearly a year, the new cut relies on a simple electronic cadence to set the pace before deeper bass synths and overwhelmingly warm tones build a melody that will resonate with eager ears. Speaking on the track, Baker says:
It was written in a World War Two bunker in a tiny little studio 50 feet under ground in Stockholm, Sweden. It was such a surreal experience just being there, let alone coming out of this studio with a song that felt very special and honest.
