Following his recent return, and release of a new single, Popeska (real name Ralf Popescu) is launching a new alias. The project sees Popescu and his friend Matt Petters, a vocalist and guitarist, joining forces in a duo venture called Vedado.

The new project, which Popescu teased at the beginning of September, now has its debut single attached to its name. "Messing Around" gives listeners a candid view of the project's direction. In true DIY fashion Vedado are taking ownership of the creative process from all directions including their aesthetics and songwriting.

The two originally started making music together as roommates. The location of their apartment, on Vedado Way, inspired the name of the project. Between their commonalities in circumstance and creative outlook, the two have rapidly stockpiled a trove of songs to be released over time.
