I’m a sucker for throwbacks as much as the next guy, especially when they’re discussed in a manner such as this. Carasel makes it be known that he’s a product of 1980s and 1990s American pop culture—specifically hip-hop. The song, “Flashback,” has a lot of Easter eggs in its visuals and the song itself. Finding them all is a beautiful trip down memory lane while. This is while the song also showcases Carasel’s present as an artist and his future (which will be guided by his past).
I think this is a case of a strong song having even stronger visuals, because the visuals help hammer home most of the points the song brings up. If you’re like me and love a trip down a nostalgic rabbit hole, I think you should check this out. Remember to support dope music in all its forms.
