The skies might be getting bleaker here in Manila, but we don’t have to be so gloomy because of this latest release. Our boys from 88rising bring an end to our gloomy morning with a fresh new drop.
The sun-kissed music video for their single Midsummer Madness induces the tropical vibes we miss minus the scorching summer heat. What’s best about is this is the first track of an all-star, upcoming 88rising album in the works.
It starts with the smooth vocals of Joji reeling you in for a chill audiovisual ride. Stylized as an homage to lo-fi, homemade vacation video; we see the whole crew of this music collective kicking back and sailing out. This signifies as a toast to themselves after all the hard work to reach where they are now. Watching and listening to them do a well-deserved pat on the back invites you to be a part of their celebration. They made it to where they are now and we watched them hustle their way there.
The new track also features the poster children of the collective. We see Rich Brian, Higher Brothers, along with the collective’s new R&B princess NIKI. Among the familiar faces in the visual are Post Malone and AUGUST08. Can’t wait for their album drop? Us too. One thing’s for sure though, we’re listening to this on a loop throughout the weekend. Want to celebrate with the crew too? Watch the music video above.
