Lido – Lover of Pokemon, N64, and Music Without Compromise

It’s through weirdly concocted chord progressions. It’s through creatively teetering drum patterns. It’s through utilizing a sultry singing voice. It’s through grooving and thumping on various machines and instruments. More importantly, it’s through a defiant attitude towards the existing music establishments.
