Detroit stalwarts GRiZ and Muzzy Bearr teamed up for this blissful midsummer special that’s sure to be heard on patios and in pools everywhere this summer.
An ode to laid-back summer vibes, “Summer ’97” is an homage to days spent lounging with the wind at your back and sun on your face.
Starting with a sample from the cult classic movie, Dazed and Confused, the beat eases in to provide swift contentment to the ears.
Chock full of tranquil live instrumentation, “Summer ’97” might be GRiZ’s most chilled out release to date.
With a piano groove that floats languidly to the front of the mix, Muzzy Bearr’s guitar adds a silky Detroit soul feel to the already liesurly tune. As the repeated lyrics, “laid back in the summertime”, encircle listeners – the idyllic feeling of summer can’t help but seep into one’s bones.
With a calm and collected sound that drips puddles of future funk feels, GRiZ and Muzzy Bearr’s “Summer ’97” is a soon-to-be summer speaker box classic.
