Watch List: Sun Rai Ft Ben Vanderwal - Whack Hop

Australian singer/songwriter Sun Rai caught our attention last year with his polished musical sensibility and deft touch on the keys, and, having closed out last year on tour with Oh Land, he has followed up a February writing session with Akon by playing this week in Austin at SXSW as he looks forward to an April tour of his homeland. Giving a hint of what audiences can expect, he recently settled into Sound Baker Studios in Perth, Australia, joined by Ben Vanderwal on drums, to give a live performance of 'Whack Hop', taken from his upcoming EP 'Escargot', the smooth, gently expressive soul in his voice singing a lament for a lost love as he displays his dexterous facility on keys while accompanied by Vanderwal's sophisticated percussion.
