blackwave. Presents the Dark-but-Optimistic “good day”

Belgian duo blackwave. just came across my desk this morning with their latest track, “good day.” Sonically, it reminds me of a mix between later-era Mac Miller and Twenty-One Pilots with a boombap twist. That is, it’s pretty honest about mental health struggles, but they’re made more palatable because of a slightly upbeat instrumental. There’s a bit of hope within the darkness as well, which is where the Mac comparisons come from–for me, at least.

The duo work well together with their sing-rap moments and honest wordplay. I also like the comparison between an old record and the group. That’s because we all feel like we could use a little spit shine to get us back in the flow of things. Even if that means different things for different people, we sometimes all need that push to get us going again. So if you’re looking for a song that’s emotional and dark (but still has some elements of “I’m going to make it out of this funk), check this one out and support dope music in all its forms.
