Childish Gambino is here for the surprise releases and has dropped off a two-track EP Summer Pack with two summertime songs. Aptly titled “Summertime Magic” and “Feels Like Summer,” they have summertime beats and are about the summer.
“Summertime Magic” is standout of the bunch with a funky, tropical beat, singing praises for a woman and summertime.
“Feels Like Summer” has an unfinished demo feel to it, which some may enjoy, but given how great his music has been over the years, the beat makes you wanting more.
It works for everyone gearing up for a nap by the pool, but the real meat comes in the lyrics as Gambino laments the damage to our environment, “Every day gets hotter than the one before / Running out of water, it’s about to go down / Go down / Air that killed the bees that we depend upon / Birds were made for singing, waking up to no sound / No sound," he sings.
This is the type of music that will top summer playlists for the rest of this hot swamp ass season.
