Eva-Lina’s “You so Cool” sounds every bit the summertime jam it is intended to be. Musically, chill synth chords are driven by a tight electronic bassline and beat with trap-hats, tailor made for a surfside dancefloor. Eva-Lina’s voice is excellent, showing impressive range flowing smoothly between low-spoken verses and high Mariah-like soprano harmonies.
Lyrically the track is just fun, covering the familiar ground of a girl digging on a bad boy… “I know you’re bad for me. But I don’t care cus’ I am mad for you.” And when she sings, “I think you so cool, hot dam, hot dam, boy,” that’s the hook. You can almost hear pop fans reciting the line back to each other. On the beach, obviously.
Here is what Eva-Lina says about “You so Cool”…
