Behaviorist crafts lush, orchestral soundscapes, plays Baby's 2.1

Behaviorist is the solo project of multi-instrumentalist Stephen Chen, best known for his dynamic saxophone work with Brooklyn chamber pop outfit San Fermin, and as an individual endeavor it carries some of the dramatic, art rock elements of his full band while expanding into more cerebral lyrical territory. Chen states that Behaviorist’s title is derived from “the psychological revolution that imagine[s] living beings as manipulable machines,” informing the songwriting channeled into the project’s four singles as lurid, experimental meditations on facets of the human psyche. “Hard To Please,” Chen’s most recent effort, is perhaps the most lush of these meditations, an at face, explicit presentation of sexual appetites against plucking, echoing guitars and synchronized baritone sax. It’s a track rife with dramatic tension, a consequence of its slow-building, orchestral instrumentation, and promises a climactic live performance when Behaviorist takes Baby’s All Right next month supporting Sean McVerry and Sulene. Until then, you can stream it below. -Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt)
