Consider your Labor Day Weekend house party playlist complete.
There’s no getting around the fact that summer’s basically over, so we might as well just make like Naomi Campbell and FACE IT. Here to help you accept this awful truth is DATABOY, an Austin, Texas-based EDM duo whose mashup of Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” and Lana Del Rey’s “Summertime Sadness” makes for the perfect
summer bummer jam to see the season out in style.
The aptly titled “We Can’t Stop Summertime Sadness” is definitely gonna be of some comfort to us at our Labor Day Weekend house party. We hope. Sure, we’ll put on a brave face as we deal with the inevitability of autumn, but TBH we’ll probably just look like this GIF.
Watch DATABOY’s “We Can’t Stop Summertime Sadness” mash-up video after the jump.
The Jaime Ibarra-directed clip sets the mood with a fast-paced, pulsing synth, kinda like the one in ex-Destiny’s Child member LeToya’s “She Ain’t Got…” To this we say, GO ONNNN. As the video progresses, it alternates between party shots and scenes of singers Adam and Cameron belting their adorable hearts out in #AllBlackEverything.
Managing to capture all the tragedy, comedy, and everything in between that you’d expect from a Miley/ Lana mashup — well, other than a twerking babe with bee-stung lips, that is — DATABOY’s gonna be all up on our vacay playlist this weekend.
