Summer left the Philippines and entered America. However, our unpredictable weather’s inclement-sultry interchange renders Childish Gambino’s two new releases relevant. Despite branded as the “Summer Pack,” his songs are the perfect balance of moody and dance.
After transcending human boundaries through symbolic barrage “This Is America,” Gambino takes it easier. Because who wouldn’t during a splendid season? “Feels Like Summer” is a playful, dreamy bop sparkling in steel drums. “Summertime Magic” is an atmospheric groove with subtle, beautiful beat drops. Although these two releases are ironically chill, we’re in utter bliss.
Perhaps we can say it’s always sunny in the Philippines, because we’ll be listening to these all year round.
