D.C. producer Judah‘s recent infatuation with summery themes—-whether it’s the weather itself or certain articles of women’s fashion—-continues with the release of Chris McDonald‘s “20 Something Summers,” a breezy, carefree, and lighthearted song on a familiar pop-cultural theme: the refreshing innocence of a new summertime love.
The Judah-produced song is the first single from McDonald’s forthcoming 20 Something Summers EP. The track, much like Judah’s “Sundresses and Sandals,” knows its light purpose, hence its retro-minded beats and persistent,but not overly aggressive, synthesizers. “I’ve been here for 20-something summers, and some have been better than others,” McDonald, of Maryland, sings on the hook. “But this one here I’m gonna be remembering … and it’s because of you.”
Although “20 Something Summers” isn’t quite a knockout, it’s a catchy song with an appreciable message: Embrace summer while it lasts.
