Two years after releasing “E.p. #1” under the name HYBIRD (see our earlier story), our very own Ravi Krishnaswami has just put out his first full length record, Gemini, on Off Atlas Records, who describe the album as “A seamless blend of modern indie-pop, 80s new wave, and searching folk, crafted with a composer’s precision, while retaining the ‘fluidity of line’ found in stream-of-consciousness art music.”

It’s a COPILOT tradition to end the year by sending you a lovingly curated mixtape. We’re still just two music nerds eagerly sharing opinions and new discoveries, and we always love hearing from you. Commenting is enabled on this post!
We’re thrilled to be part of World Wildlife Fund’s amazing “Together” app, which was just refreshed as part of Apple’s “Apps for Earth” initiative. Partner/CD Ravi Krishnaswami, a/k/a Hybird composed an original song and underscore for the app, its trailer, and its “shareable video,” which were designed by AKQA (DC). The song “Together” is part of a three song debut E.P. available to stream on Spotify and SoundCloud, and to purchase at iTunes and Amazon. “Underneath the Wild Blue Light” appears in WWF’s recent “Explore” eBook. Our music was provided pro-bono for WWF and a portion of digital sales will be donated back to the organization. Click below to learn more and to stream the songs now!
