RELEASE: "ok, cool" EP



“ok, cool” EP Release


Columbia College Chicago’s own award winning AEMMP Records is set to release ok, cool, a three song EP, on May 6, 2015. Featuring the music of Something Cliche, Reverse Gravity and Theoretically, ok, cool showcases the talents of student created bands, audio engineering work, and record label management skills.


This is the fourth EP to come out of Columbia College’s music business Immersion class, which combines students from the Business and Entrepreneurship, Music, and Audio departments and challenges them to form a band, record music, and create a marketable finished product to distribute. Incredibly created in only four days, and featuring three unique music styles across a range of genres from pop-rock to singer-songwriter to even funk, ok, cool creates a cohesive and entertaining listening experience that will appear to music listeners of all kinds.


Track One: With or Without You- Something Cliche’s “With or Without You” starts off the ok, cool EP with a bang. The song brings to life the relatable feelings of being in a confusing relationship and the strong female vocals on the track scream independence.


Track Two: Losing Height- Reverse Gravity changes the tone with their song, “Losing Height”. Continuing with the theme of love songs and breakup songs, Reverse Gravity brilliantly combines smooth R&B beats and vocals with rap.


Track Three: I Hope You Know- Filled with strong vocals and powerful guitar solos, Theoretically finishes off ok, cool on a note that you will surely remember. “I Hope You Know” is the perfect addition to the trifecta of tracks.


To mark the release, AEMMP will be releasing a short animated video that encapsulates the feeling of the entire EP. We will also be hosting an a release party at Door No. 3 at 1551 N. Damen Ave featuring all local, female fronted bands. Along with the video and release show, we will be giving away stickers, yo-yos and temporary tattoos that will showcase the album artwork as well as links to the music.


No matter what type of music you love, everyone can find something to enjoy on ok, cool. Featuring three unique bands, exhibiting a wide range of Columbia student talent and produced in less than a week, this release will not only stun you with its quality and professional grade work, but will also leave you singing along.
