The origin story of The Cool Kids—Mikey Rocks and Chuck Inglish—is an increasingly familiar one: Boy meets boy over the Internet, and the two quickly discover their mutual love for ’80s-styled beats and rhyming. Unfortunately, the next chapter is also increasingly familiar: Label woes kept a full-length debut, When Fish Ride Bicycles, in suspended animation for nearly three years. The LP’s title looked to be becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy, but the Kids finally saw it released this summer on PepsiCo’s Mountain Dew label, Green Label Sounds.
