We were already excited about “Brooklanta” duo Kool Head after hearing the funky, hip hop inflected subterranean disco of their debut track, “Leon.” But when they sent us the Joywave-produced “Stick Up Kids,” it became a love thing. “Stick Up Kids” is a fully formed dramatic new wave pop opus, slowly building toward a cathartic conclusion vaguely reminiscent of David Bowie’s “Under Pressure.” Kool Head is no one-trick indie dance pony; they’re an emerging pop force that genuinely transcends genres in an unpretentious and soulful way. We aren’t the only ones preaching the Kool Wave gospel; the duo just landed a publishing deal with Shapiro Bernstein / All Right Music (of AIR fame) and is currently shooting videos, recording their debut EP and generally charting a path for musical world domination. Good looks. Snag a free copy of “Stick Up Kids” below.
