Believe it or not, the Cool Kids’ oft-delayed proper debut, When Fish Ride Bicycles, is dropping next week. Their buzz might have died down a bit, but that doesn’t mean Mikey Rocks and Chuck Inglish are about to push out a dud. The tracks we have heard thus far, including the newly leaked “Penny Hardaway,” aren’t quite as riveting as they would have been two or three years ago. But these guys know how to make minimalist bangers perfect for parties, car rides, and other mindless activities. They’re not looking to split your wig with metaphors and punch lines. Rather, the Cool Kids want to be the soundtrack for whatever flat-out fun activity you’re about to embark on next. And if you listen to “Penny Hardaway” and think differently, you’re doing something wrong.
Stream “Penny Hardaway” below. When Fish Ride Bicycles drops July 12.
