Our hope is to create genuine, emotive art for individuals to connect with in a unique way. We choose to not publicly reveal any information about the project and ourselves in order to effectively carry out this mission: We believe that disclosing our personalities, politics, alignments, intentions, orientations, etc could detach the listener further from the personal connection that they have made with the music.

We must support and respect the unique truths and individual meanings that the listeners generate themselves from the tracks and the visuals. Art is not what the artist intends it to be, but rather what you make of it. If we are simply the vessels, who are we to take meaning away from something by imposing our own views, biasis, intentions, etc? 

We choose to be the blank canvas. We want our listeners to find their own significance in the pieces by looking inwardly and seeking the answers within themselves rather than from us: disclosing the context of the work could shatter the individual’s distinct value of the piece that they have created for themselves. There is only one true meaning, and it is that which the listener has concluded is their truth. 

Despite not sharing ourselves in the traditional and physical sense, we instead exclusively share our raw emotional selves by exposing our most personal thoughts, moments, and feelings in the music. Anonymity allows us the freedom to be candid and void of restraint, repercussions and fear. This music is the most personal thing I have ever done, so the relationship we have with our listeners through this channel is an extremely intimate one.

If you feel the music, you understand it, you understand us, and just like that, we are connected. Regardless of our potential differences, we are there together, in the same emotional landscape, through this music. And that is worth preserving. 

Though we're seen, we will never be seen: just like you

Though we’re heard, we will never be heard: just like you

Though we're known, we will never be known: just like you

Cool Company is an independent Future R&B duo comprised of dynamic vocalist, Cool Yan, and multi-instrumentalist/producer, Fat Matt. By seamlessly blending elements of Hip-Hop, R&B, Pop, Funk and Soul, Cool Company has been able to strike a remarkable balance between mellow serenades and funkified grooves. And, with over 22 million streams across Spotify & Apple Music, the band is just starting to get the attention they deserve.

Influenced by artists like Outkast, Frank Ocean, and Childish Gambino, Cool Company has just dropped their latest project, The Dose Pt. 1 EP led by standout single Bust It Open (3M+ streams) and a celebrity (Alisha Boe of Netflix's 13 Reasons Why) starring music video for their song Summer Sickness (100K+ views) Part two of The Dose will be arriving in 2019, which will continue to find Yan and Matt expanding their newfound musical territory.


Faucet is a four piece dark dream pop outfit out of Philadelphia. Elements of gaze-like soundscapes and urban sadness sit within their sonic aura.
