“Seasons,” if I had to give it a comparison reminds me a little of Post Malone. Think "Circles" or "Sunflower." If we ever meet in person, and Steven swings at me for the comparison, I would understand, but I am not in anyway trying to insult the song. Until it was overplayed, "Sunflower" was a bop, and "Circles" has almost two billion streams. I won't apologize for comparing the song to such successful music.
Outside of the Bud Light Cowboy, it’s no secret that many contemporary hip hop artists cite indie rock and pop punk as musical influences which bleed through into their work. Chance the Rapper talked about his love for Death Cab for Cutie, eventually collaborating with Ben Gibbard on “Do You Remember.” Juice WRLD (RIP) is probably the most well known artist in recent memory who pulled on these influences. And love him or hate him, Machine Gun Kelly decided to not just add influences of pop punk but completely redefine himself and make the switch to the genre.
Steven Fogamomi does a great job of blending the genres on “Seasons” to make something authentically his own. Moreover, it’s the kind of easy listening that makes you think of warmer days amidst the frozen hellscape we currently find ourselves in.
