Baths

LA-based electro-pop artist Will Wiesenfeld, better known under the Baths moniker, has been making vibrant and sunny beats and spinning tales of fantasy with his airy falsetto voice since the release of his debut album Cerulean in 2010.  His new album Romaplasm continues to tread this path of otherworldly pop adventure that crafts an aura of comfort and warmth around his music, and sets Baths apart from the doom and gloom of the LA electro scene.
