Catchy, inventive and consistently clever, the Vermont-based duo GOOD WTHR delivers a brand of hip-hop that’ll appeal more to the college listener than to hard-core headz. “I Promise” deploys a smile-inducing snippet of a children’s group repeating the command “I promise to have fun and just be alive today!” The Chainsmokers-like “April 3rd,” with its memorable chorus, “Wake up, wake up!,” will definitely appeal to teens. Our favorite is “Somewhere Shining” with its grooving track and a smooth amalgam of sounds (including a whiff of reggae) that’s a people-pleaser. It’s the kind of unique song, with a super-catchy chorus, that cannot help but appeal to a wide range of listeners.
