A tremendously fun and catchy indie-pop release from US-based artist AJ Smith. ‘Cooler’ is a relatable bop with lyrics we can all find some level of connect with.
“First dates, insecurities, worrying we might say the wrong thing and lose our chance at true love. We’ve all been there. ‘Cooler’ is a song about those nerves and the internal dialogue I’ve had whenever I’ve met someone new. Wishing to be cooler, hoping to get a second chance if I messed up this first one. I hope it gives someone the confidence they need to boldly be themselves and recognise they’re already ‘cooler’ the way they are.”
Smith’s songwriting and performance talents have already him earned multiple awards, including the Abe Oleman Scholarship from the Songwriters Hall of Fame and ranking as a semi-finalist in the 2020 International Songwriting Contest.
