A sunshiny pop number that’s just so clearly made for summer, “A Bee Without Its Sting” is an advance single from the forthcoming album by The Go! Team. More crucial to its gleaming appeal is the presence of Detroit students Jessie Miller and Rian Woods, both recruited from the Detroit Academy of Arts & Sciences Choir. They help imbue the track with the personality and innocence of vintage Jackson 5 songs, a clear touchstone. It’s a breezy day at the beach alchemizing into rhythm and melody.
The new album from the Go! Team, entitled Get Up Sequences Part One, is scheduled for release in early July.
