about

The third official full-length album offering from Coolzey following 2010's debut 'The Honey' and 2013's sophomore effort 'Hit Factory' sees a return to the collaborative, party atmosphere of its predecessors by utilizing musical cohorts from Los Angeles and Iowa for instrumentation and general vibes but with a decided embracement of the 90s-birthed genre known as Alternative, this time leaning on Alt-Rock in particular, though still exploring the far reaches of the Hip Hop universe from experimental indie rap ('The Start-Up Son' featuring Fake Four Inc's Ceschi Ramos) all the way to a dark club homage to Ke$ha's Die Young 'Forever 21' featuring up and coming outspoken queer rap warrior Kamil Kardashian. However, the spirit of the album is most adequately voiced by the bouncy lead pop rock single and first track 'Qualify the End' which playfully references Kriss Kross and House of Pain in a melancholy yet up beat track that evidences the influence of Weezer, Archers of Loaf and the ever-present undertones of Velvet Underground.

about

Coolzey Fairfield, Iowa

Golden era hip-hop roots planted in black Iowa dirt are the foundation. Growth tempered by alternative era rock influence. This along with a love for the juxtaposition of the dark, horrific nature of life paired with a slapstick and comedic view of the world allow for a wide, unpredictable arsenal ranging from soul-spilling indie bedroom rock to wise-cracking battle rap and on to radio pop. ... more

Track Name: Qualify the End
I didn't come here to fight
I think that you know it too
I’m just trying to have a good flight
And I wanted to sit next to you

You gave me two choices
Puppy chump or a prick so aloof
Oh when did things get like this
Let's cut it loose
I’m sorry that I let you down

Well I hope you make it home tonight
Cus I don’t know what’s happening
That must have been some fight
I’m not trying to
Qualify the end

Well Kriss Kross they made you Jump
And House of Pain made you jump around
That’s all good but
I got a king-sized lump all up in my throat right about now
And I know that I let you down

Well I hope you make it home tonight
Cus I don’t know what’s happening
That must have been some fight
Were you trying to
Qualify the end
I know you hate it most when I
Want to know what’s happening
I’m ok yeah I’m fine
I’m not trying to
Qualify the end
Qualify the end

You know I didn't mean to piss you off at all but
Misunderstandings abound
And I'm just hoping that I can
Quality the end
I can keep up with the clean up
Because I don't wanna let you down
Let you down
