Vital is the moniker of Duranta D. Cook – an artist who started his career in hip hop – but recently made the switch to indie dream pop. I can’t really imagine a more different approach to music than those two genres, but Vital’s results make it obvious that he’s comfortable with what he’s doing now.
The music is effortless to like, mixing soulful vocals, wistful lyrics and airy instrumentation. You can get one of the tracks – “Airport” – here, and the rest of his self-titled EP through his website.
Also, check out the video for “Airport,” directed by TAKCOM, posted below.
