Summer is here, which means a lot of the songs that lamestream is breeding follows the algorithm-fed model: simple rhythm with sharp hooks that try to ‘boost’ your mood. And as much as we love indulging in lamestream formula, we need a mood-stabilizing song that can help us smooth out our overdose of clichés. Souly Had’s “Paradis” is that refreshing song that helps you to chillax while still being in the flow. It exudes a laidback vibe, but is filled with the rap-centric choruses of Souly who keeps your adrenalins going. With tints of electropical elements, “Paradise” feels like a heavenly slice from all the summer pop songs that keep frying our ears:
