Having made his name with some brisk and sample-formed bedroom electronica, Ryan DeRobertis aka Long Island’s Saint Pepsi has turned his established sound into something that more closely resembles Toro Y Moi making bright funky pop music.

‘Fiona Coyne’ is from a new 7″ on Car Park Records and features the producer on full live singing duties with a carefree guitar riff and some background horn sections lifting the song into “summer tune” territory. The single is out August 12th b/w ‘Fall Harder’.
