The Vibrant Sound, “79th And Flight”

The Vibrant Sound has been getting a lot of love in Provo since the recent release of their first album, Downtown, and deservedly so. The group blends a myriad of styles to create a musical amalgamation that brings people of all stripes to Velour on a regular basis — indies, Molly Mormon/Peter Priesthoods, beauty queens, Provo all-stars, summer sales tools, those that wear socks with sandals, etc. To these concert-goers, songwriter-vocalist McKay Stevens’ socially conscious raps are part just-edgy-enough-to-feel-dangerous hip-hop, part comprehensive American history lesson.

Coincidentally, “79th And Flight” is probably the least politically oriented of the band’s songs. With Stevens taking a brief hiatus from his role as the Provo music scene’s resident moral conscience, the Vibrant Sound rips through a fun ditty that defines the term “summer jam.” Featuring rhymes about the likes of Pacman and Vision Street Wear, ’80s references ad infinitum and a catchy chorus, this track is the perfect way to soundtrack your last week of summer vacation. So enjoy it, people: turn up some Vibrant Sound and soak up your last week of freedom. The Beast beckons.
