COBRA STARSHIP "You Make Me Feel…" MP3 + OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO

Cobra Starship

Boy has “pop punk” changed in the last decade or more. And even further back, it’s even much more different. Well, I remember listening to a slew of bands from Fueled By Ramen as a teen. There were bands like Discount (who happened to be lead by Alison Mosshart of the band The Kills) and ska punk bands such as The Impossibles. But years after that eventually lead to MTV acts such as Fall Out Boy and what this post is about, the band Cobra Starship. Times have truly changed huh?

Well, I first encountered the music of Cobra Starship when the film Snakes On A Plane became a cult classic led by Samuel L. Jackson. The band (who was just Gabe Saporta of New Jersey pop punk band Midtown at the time) penned “Snakes on a Plane (Bring It)” which sky rocketed all over MTV. And coincidentally an indie pop (yes, an actual one) band called This Is Ivy League were hired guns to join the group. Since then they have garnered millions of fans throughout the world with their brand of pop punk that involved thematic songs that were part of the wave of bands such as Fall Out Boy and Panic! At The Disco were known for.

Anyways, I haven’t paid attention to the band since then. But almost two years ago I was in a car driving around Minneapolis and heard a song called “Good Girls Go Bad” in their Top Forties radio station. Eventually, I found it was them and was “WHAT THE HOLY FUCK!” The song was ridiculously huge and I hadn’t even realized the band had already crossed over not only into the mainstream but into the party world and dance realm. I had heard the song in clubs next to songs by other artists such as Katy Perry. Pretty bizzare in my mind if only for a moment.

So with that, I too have changed over the years. Having been born and raised in Miami in middle school my whole world was surrounded by BOOTY MUSIC. Club music, dance music, salsa music, etc. Yes, that anti-indie rock music. But I loved it. I loved dancing. I loved shaking that booty. But after that indie rock took over. Well, after years of indie rock I have accepted “clubbing” into my life and rejoiced and found Top Forties quite relaxing to get CRUNK to. So anyways, Cobra Starship are back with a new single called “You Make Me Feel…” And I swear to the heavens above if I didn’t know about the band and heard this at a club I’d swear it was a some sort of new pop act. Featuring Sabi (although it would’ve been amazing if it was Rihanna instead, no offense Sabi) the song is pretty damn fun. The chorus is catchy and if I were drunk enough I’d probably be raising my hands up in the air like Snooki from Jersey Shore and singing “La La La La.”

Sorry indie pop friends! Their new album Night Shades is out August 30th, 2011 via Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen.

TWIN SISTER "Bad Street" MP3 + OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO

Twin Sister
Here it is, the first official music video for their upcoming album In Heaven and lead single “Bad Street.” Prior to moving to New York, I always imagined that this is what house parties would look and feel like. Although after a few years I still have yet to have experienced a New York City summer house part of any sort, the music video captivates just what that imaginary or nostalgic take on a summer party would be like.

According to the YouTube info the music video was “Shot at lead singer Andrea Estella’s family’s house in Long Island and populated by her bandmates, friends and family, the video is a genuine peek into one of the many worlds that have shaped Twin Sister’s wide ranging styles.” (It was directed by Dan Devine and produced by Daniel Gausman) The soothing funky vibes fit perfectly right in with the fun that everyone is having in the music video. And although a little different from the hazy-ness of their previous songs, if the album turns out just like this single I wouldn’t mind that at all. 

Their new album In Heaven will be out September 27th, 2011 via Domino Records.

CULTS "Go Outside" MP3 + OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO

Cults

So yeah, I guess Cults have sort of “blown up” since I first blogged about them. The power of the internets to take their song “Go Outside” to be first posted on their BandCamp and then later less than a year later released by Columbia Records is really something. Since then, the track has gone through remixes and unofficial music videos. Today, they released their official music video for the track. Using footage from the Brian Jonestown Massacre, I can’t tell if they’re trying to use it as a provocative way of getting more attention or just reinforcing their ideas of Cults and where they got their name. Although the actual vintage footage as well as newly shot footage kind of sparks the “nostalgia” feeling of old pop music, the subject in the video is also kind of a hard topic to be sun-shiny about.

SILVER SWANS “Meet Me Somewhere Nice” OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO

Silver Swans

Directed by Graham Mooney, the first official music video for Silver Swans is a joyous and colorful accompaniment for the track it was shot for. Coming from their Secrets EP, the track “Meet Me Somewhere Nice” is a mixture of indie pop, fifties doo-wop and gorgeous songwriting. The music video uses San Francisco’s bay as a setting to enhance the feeling of dreamy love with the beach’s waves, stunning sun and playful balloons in the distance. If you enjoyed their single “Secrets” you’ll love “Meet Me Somewhere Nice.”
