Now he’s treating us to a proper full-length album, which navigates the outskirts of poppy electronics.

7/10 Jack Customer review, 13th February 2018

If you like Vampire Weekend, you'll probably love Baio. Great lyrics, super drum beats, great music overall, even when it delves completely into electronic music, a great album. The only thing that could make it better would be to have more songs on it. I really dig the sound of this album. The best tracks may be the ones that show shades of Vampire Weekend, at least in terms of the bass lines, but I appreciate the whole record, musically to Chris Baio's Bryan Ferry-esque swagger and vocal stylings.
