Cobra Starship is back! The DCD2 Records/Fueled By Ramen band that brought you Top 5 hits like the multi-platinum tracks “You Make Me Feel” and “Good Girls Go Bad” has returned, teaming up with Wallpaper. and John Ryan to release the summer jam “Never Been In Love” featuring Icona Pop.
“Never Been In Love” has a stadium-pop sound reminiscent of an earlier era. “I had been listening to a lot of early 90’s UK artists — Jesus Jones, EMF, George Michael,” explains Saporta, “It was a time when bands first started incorporating break beats and electronic elements into their music. I had been trying to find a way to modernize that sound.” When Wallpaper. had the idea to sample Fatboy Slim’s “Praise You,” Gabe knew they had hit the nail on the head. “I heard that piano break and I knew we had it.”
