Young Chris Felner and his team are thriving these days. The Connecticut native, better known as Felly, is gearing up for the release of his latest project titled "Milk & Sugar" on the 31st of October. Schoolzones is the first single we've been blessed with, and really shows both sides of the artist we've grown to love.
The first half of the track, until around the 2 minute mark, is a triumphant, groovy, feel-good effort from Fel, characterized by those vibrant synths, a little percussion and the smooth melodies. The vibe has a progressive feel to it, as Felly looks toward the future, while remaining grounded in, and enjoying the beauty of the present.
Whether it be by cruising through school zones blowing smoke, or simply spending some time in the sun, we all could all afford to slow down a bit and just enjoy life a little more often.
The last minute and a half or so, is more of a throwback cut from the 2273 affiliate. Fel returns to his more lo-fi, jazzy roots that were the hallmarks of his sound up to this point, and complements them with some laid-back introspective bars that recall the days of "Come As You Are".
Overall, I think this track is a brilliant introduction to Felly's sound, and where it's going as he continues to progress and grow. This is just another great effort in a long line of them from the rising producer and emcee.
Every time Felly drops something you should do yourself a favor and tune in. We at College Of Music have been big fans of the kid from Trumbull for a while now, since 2011 to be exact, and can't wait to see where his music continues to take him.
Look out for the new project on Halloween, another great reason to look forward to this holiday other than costumes and parties, and stay tuned for more from Felly and 2273, as they continue to spread creativity and good vibes.
