Chill Bump - Not Today

11/10/2014 Tunes For Loons 0 Comments

Admission: I'm not really up on the Parisian hip-hop scene. Apparently, "Not Today" is not duo Chill Bump's first foray into the blogosphere. In fact, it's an emerging favorite off of their newly dropped (Nov. 4th) full length album. Well, boys, I apologize for not knowing who you are. However, I have a sneaking suspicion that I am not alone in my ignorance. So for those of you looking for a few "sounds like" descriptors to clue you in - I have the perfect comparison. Flashback to 2009: remember flobots? "I can ride my bike with NO HANDLEBARS." Yeah, this song is v similar, but a lot lot better. How can that be? Idk, it's just true. It's got that chillwave vibe but without those asinine lyrics... ex. "I can split the atom of a molecule." Unless y'all are the first rappers/nuclear physicists, I HIGHLY doubt that. In regards to lyrics, Chill Bump is channelling more Slugg (ya know, from Atmosphere) than Asher Roth. Respect, guys.
