Our friend Darren Criss and his brother Charles Criss stopped by to chat about their latest musical endeavor, a group called Computer Games, with a newly released EP, Lost Boys Life.
The duo decided to start the group as a throwback to their high schools days when they would jam out together. After graduating, Charles is older, they pursued individual outlets, Darren with the hit show Glee and Charles with Freelance Whales.
The name, Computer Games, is a tribute to their love of old school childhood computer games like Oregon Trail.
Darren told Billboard.com, "We win either way, because we wanted to record these [songs] and we’re happy about these -- nobody was shoving this down our throats, it didn’t feel forced. In that regard, it was a personal victory. We’ll see what people say and what they want, and we’ll give the people what they want."
The duo dropped an EP on March 8th after hinting to fans on social media that something was in the works. Lost Boys Life, comprised of 4 tracks, is available for purchased on iTunes.
What can we expect from Computer Games in the future? Darren and Charles are just going to wait it out and see what the fans have to say!
