Named a 2013 Artist to Watch by Billboard and MTV, Robert DeLong has taken the music scene by storm since releasing his debut album, Just Movement, in February of this year.

There’s no democracy, no food, and teenagers are forced to kill each other while everyone else watches. Not exactly sexy vampires, eh?
