For those of us who reside in the Northern Hemisphere, summer is quickly coming to a close. In the U.S., September 7th (Labor Day), is the unofficial "last call" for anyone looking to have that final summertime fling or have the friends over for a backyard barbecue. However, musicians aren't known for paying too much attention to such deadlines and, as a result, we are often gifted a few memorable summertime bops relatively late in the season.
Brooklyn-based singer,Alex Mali, clearly doesn't abide but such rules as she livens up our post-Labor Day playlists with a sun-kissed, tropical-flavored tune called "Good Good."I couldn't help but be struck by how bright and vibrant this dancehall/reggaeton number is.
Alex's voice easily dives into an up-close and flirty tone one moment then rockets towards a range as high as the clouds the next. Plus, the clubby pulse of Essancy & Julian Nixon's beat really brings home the Afro-Caribbean feel of the catchy song. A savory morsel of sound that expertly captures the weekend-cruising vibes of Mali's latest EP, Phenom.
There's also a beautifully choreographed video (HERE) to go along with the song that will absolutely ward off any end-of-summer blues you may be feeling right about now.
