Above, we have the latest from Duckwrth, the aptly-titled “We Outside.” Equal parts celebratory of the pandemic being a bit more controlled and just straight banger, the artist darts around the track. What we end up getting is about two-and-a-half minutes of high energy that’s perfect for the last few months of the year. It’s not exactly a summer anthem; instead, it’s just an anthem for making it through the last (almost) two years. Considering how crazy 2020 and 2021 have been, this is a song that anyone can respect and vibe with.
The visualizer features Duckwrth training near a cliff, practicing his stick and move maneuvers on a loop. Granted, I know it’s just a brief clip to go along with the song but I feel it fits perfectly with the world we’re in. Between the pandemic, racial tensions and other issues, it can sometimes feel as if we’re in an endless loop of bad news. However, it’s up to each and every one of us to try to make the best out of our collectively crappy situations and just celebrate the small things as well as the big ones.
“We Outside” is a banger, for sure. However, it also captures the frantic nature of 2020 and 2021 in a song that’s under three minutes long. Check it out above and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
