After listening to the Preview to The Cool Kids’ debut ‘When Fish Ride Bicycles’ on iTunes (Due July 12) its safe to say that there is another Neptunes track on the album called Get Right confirmed by their official site with the tracklist. It’s good to see that they got back to the old school Neptunes synths and with Cool Kids’ amiable, good-natured and laid-back mellow flow it sounds like it’s a leftover from a N*E*R*D session. The second Neptunes Track ‘Summer Jam’ that features the new Star Trak Signee Maxine Ashley sounds very promising. The guys have always looked up to Pharrell and say that it was a dream come true to be able to work with him. I can’t wait to hear Maxine sing on her own Neptunes Track in the future.
The Cool Kids ended up knocking out a hot future summer anthem, ‘Summer Jam’ could easily be their next single. “The definitive summer anthem in an album full of tracks made for the current season. Pharrell Williams takes over production duties here, which is appropriate given how clear an influence The Neptunes’ production style has had on The Cool Kids. When Skateboard P drops everything but the vocal samples and percussion, the whole thing pops. An effective album closer” says Complex. Preorder the album now on iTunes.
