The Cool Kids' Album Cover

The Cool Kids have finally released their new album, When Fish Ride Bicycles, featuring other hip hop artists such as Bun B, Ghostface Killah, and more, while drummer Travis Barker also partakes in this album. It has been three years since the release of The Bake Sale, the EP that started it all for the duo Chuck Inglish and Mikey Rocks. Since that EP, the duo has unleashed a number of mixtapes and singles. The new album consists of 11 songs, a couple of them produced by Pharrell and The Neptunes.

“Most of the tracks here come with gooey Zapp-sounding keyboards,” writes Tom Breihan from Pitchfork magazine, “a slick melodic sound that gives their tracks an extra dimension.”

As always, their songs are a fun listen and not too thought-provoking. They haven’t completely lost all of their flavor by still including an old-school style with their tone and their beats, although it has a dash of contemporary elements.

The title of their album has no symbolic meaning but is influenced by the album’s constant delays, according to SOHH.com.  Chuck Inglish tells BlackBook, “When we came up with the name it was supposed to be our first album and we didn’t get to put it out. It just seemed like fish would ride bicycles before we actually did. So we stuck with the name and it actually took form, which wasn’t cool.”

The title and album cover are unique to our eyes and ears. Don’t you think so?
