seeyousoon’s “MAGIC” is a frantic mix between pop, dance, rap and a bit of punk thrown in for good measure. It’s one of those songs that captures why the Florida collective has been on many radars over the last few years. The video is just as energetic, featuring the group performing interspersed in with brain-melting, fast-paced visuals. It’s not for the faint of heart or those who love their hip-hop as 8-bar choruses and 16-bar verses.
I actually have a hard time putting this one into one genre, which seems to be the point of “MAGIC” and its parent album HZLIKEHELL. Yes, it’s rap-friendly, but it’s one of those genre-bending/world-blending experiences that you only get these days. In a world where people are less constricted by genre, these experiences have become more normal. However, the album takes it to another level by not sacrificing itself to fit neatly into one box. The album proper shatters the idea of a sophomore slump and instead sees the group setting a sort of bar for newer collectives to come after them. Check out the visuals below and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
