The Cool Kids team up with Mayer Hawthorne for “Swimsuits”, their first single from the forthcoming album ‘When Fish Ride Bicycles’. I’m not too big on The Cool Kids and Chuck Inglish’s production is sometimes overwhelming, either one way or another, but I like this joint. Sir Mikey Rocks excels on his verse while the hook is simple and catchy but not over done. This record feels like great summer music but doesn’t deter from The Cool Kids brand. I think it’s hella short but that only makes me play it back again and again. I’d suggest a third verse on a remix but I wouldn’t want a forced collaboration that wouldn’t do the original song justice. I would have liked to hear Mayer Hawthorne attempt a bridge though. That coulda been dope.
