CD Review: Sean Cooney Warns Us About "The Zombie Apocalypse"
The album begins with the lead-off single “Brooklyn” which combines the lyrical sounds of Jason Mraz with the pop sensibility of Justin Beiber. Then, the album just takes off with contagious pop-hooks and dance-beats that just don’t quit. The song “Cali” is a fun song with its catchy chorus and harmonies, while “Party Like A Kennedy” is Cooney’s attempt at hip-hop. Sean Cooney tries working his Jazz background into some of the songs like “Lose Your Mind” and “Evil Lover.” He takes a break from his club beats for the playful, piano driven “New Friend” and the Jason Mraz blueprint “What I Like.” Cooney bridges the gap between hip-hop and pop rock with many great songs like “Pursuit Of Happiness” and “Fun Time.”
Sean Cooney has videos out for the songs “Brooklyn” and Déjà vu” (youtube.com/SeanCooneyMusic) and is beginning a tour of radio shows on college campuses and commercial radio. For more information on this new artist, check out his website, seancooney.com.
