Track Review: Those kids could be considered popular. Cool, even.

One of the things I love most about The Cool Kids - and believe me, I love a lot about them - is how effortless they make everything sound. Debut EP The Bake Sale pulled off the difficult feat of sounding timeless without also sounding like it was trying too hard. They blew up, and justifiably so.
They've finally got a proper album coming out, and to pave the way they're releasing a free mixtape on May 4 (available on their official website) to get everyone salivating. The first song they've leaked is "Popcorn", which is another prime example of their effortlessness. Since it's from a pre-album mixtape it should be treated as such, but still, it's hard not to get excited about a track where the rapper whips out lines like, "I'm trying to write a book about how to get vagina when you're hangin' at the cookout...or something to that effect."
It's not quite up there with their best material, but listening to this it feels like they could write killer songs in their sleep. Check it below, get the mixtape, be excited.
