After grinding through another week of school, there couldn’t have been a more refreshing joint to listen to than Atmosphere’s latest leak Freefallin’. From the duo Atmosphere (whose individual names, Slug and Ant, remind me of an unlikely superhero team), Freefallin’ offers some perspective on how to step back and view life when you’re placed between a rock and a hard place. The ever talented production half of ‘Sphere, Ant, brings a somber melody laced with classic guitar chords that gives the record an immediately relatable vibe. With a head nodding tempo to work with, Slug touches on topics ranging from dysfunctional relationships to jobs that never seem to satisfy, all the while making sure listeners are aware that someone else can always be in a worse position, noting that “these problems are the good ones to have.” If you liked getting yourself mentally prepared for the next week-long grind, be sure to check out their latest project To All My Friends, Blood Makes the Blade Holy: The Atmosphere EP, which will be dropping next Tuesday, September 7.
