Thompy’s got a sound (call it college rap) that we find to be unique and ultimately compelling. His signature—a reverbed, whispery, semi-stoned flow with sometimes intricate wordplay—is set to a languid, spacey track on “Endless Summer” where he muses cleverly about escapism and downtime. Though he adjusts the track’s cadence at midpoint, the artist could maybe do more to keep it going strong. “Icy” has a childlike simplicity, a borderline goofiness, that maybe wears a little thin after a while. But you can’t deny its catchy singalong quality. Thompy rebounds with “Wild Thangs” where his signature whisperflow creates a soothing intimacy and some compelling lyrical ideas.
