Winter may be around the corner, but Cobra Starship and Icona Pop are making it feel like an endless summer in their sunny, shimmering new video, "Never Been In Love," a single that dropped at the end of August.
Jamming in a graffitied DIY venue! Messing around at the airport! Getting all "Grease" at a carnival! There's really no narrative to "Never Been In Love" -- except, it seems, Cobra frontman Gabe Saporta and the Icona Pop girls having the best day ever and partying in a very stylish manner.
The nature of the jam captures the euphoric feeling of finally falling in love, and the Ellen Von Unwerth-directed video feels par for the course: a manic whirl of retro-tinged color and smiles that conjure up those first dizzy days of really good dating.
“I had been listening to a lot of early ’90s U.K. artists — Jesus Jones, EMF, George Michael,” Saporta said of the Wallpaper.-produced track, which samples Fatboy Slim's "Praise You." “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," he added.
