W.I.C. offers up a new single, 'Follow Me'

Posted By on Thu, Apr 19, 2012 at 8:23 AM

Capeeton Mudfish, Kory Calico, and Trip Freeman, aka W.I.C. (We Invented Cool), follow up on the release of their self-titled debut with "Follow Me," a funky new cut the finds the Atlanta underground hip-hop trio delving deeper into the art of crafting good driving music. Aside from the infinite rhyme schemes and singularly smooth production that holds the album together, the key selling point for these guys is simple: Their songs are workaday, off-the-clock anthems that carry a sense of integrity in the name of keeping things on an even keel, and if they're riding dirty, it's strictly for personal use. These guys aren't trying to sell you a damn thing. Rather, they're basking in the glory of life and vice, and "Follow Me" is Southern creeper by virtue - a quality that's defined by its humid tempo and plain-spoken nod to Chris Lova Lova - but also quite cerebral in its dedication to long, narratives and subtle abstractions, and the stylish vibe of their lyrical deliveries is nothing short of infectious.

W.I.C. plays the Basement on Fri., May 4 with Grip Playaz and Lyric Jones.
