“Automatic” is the second preview of the upcoming free album, Searching Sylvan, and off the bat, I’m already vibing with this one more than the solid first output “May 10th 2012”. The song is broken into two parts — the first finds QuESt rhyming from second 1 over an eerie string melody for about two-thirds of the way through. He does an excellent job sharing his mindset about his personal situation with his family and musically and croons a simple and catchy hook about having patience and that nothing is “Automatic”. I think many of us, including yours truly, can parallel to this theme.
The second part of the song, the last third, is a continuation of “Automatic” with a completely different, equally as cool of a production. Megatron ICE & 6ix really snapped from beginning to end on this, even chopping up the outro. Before that though, QuESt puts down a different fast flow and continues to engage with the rhymes. A *Tibs Fav. from beginning to end with more to come before the album drops in full on September 2nd.
First part of #Automatic is about patience. The 2nd part is about procrastination. The duality of ambition.
