Rostam took a big solo step when he released his album Half-Light last week, but he’s definitely not alone. For a glistening performance of “Gwan” on last night’s episode of Conan, he enlisted a full string ensemble to back him up. The whole array tiptoed along as Rostam, positioned centerstage, delivered earnest vocals, also allowing his backing musicians the spotlight at one moment. Watch the intimate performance above.
“Gwan” was the first official single that the former Vampire Weekend producer released for his debut solo record. Watch the video here, and read our review of Half-Light here.
