When it comes to the heat of summertime, nothing quite wets the whistle like a chill reggae tune with relaxing lyrics. Nothing matches that vibe better than Stick Figure‘s most recent release, “Summertime,” which the San Diego-based four-piece band enlists Citizen Cope for vocals.
Characterized by vibrant piano chords, the gentle strums of an acoustic guitar, and the steady beat of bongo, the song exudes a brilliant simplicity that quite literally gets its listeners to slow down. The composition is built around the lyrics, which encourage listeners to forget their worries and embrace the sunshine.
Stick Figure has been busy lately, with an upcoming performance at Levitate Festival in Massachusetts, along with a fall European tour. Not to mention, the band has been steadily releasing material from their upcoming album, including its title track with Slightly Stoopid, “World on Fire.” Stick Figure’s World On Fire LP is landing August 30.
