Artist of the Week: Cobra Starship

Our band of the week this week is 80's aficionados Cobra Starship in honor of their new album, Hot Mess. You've probably heard their song "Good Girls Go Bad" featuring Leighton Meester, but they have been making great music since 2006. The band started when former Midtown member Gabe Saporta collaborated with members of other bands to write the song "Bring It," which was featured on the Snakes on a Plane soundtrack. The song was well received and Gabe decided to make Cobra Starship a full fledged band. It is currently made up of 5 members, including a female keyarist named Victoria, who is basically our hero. They've released two previous records and will be touring this fall with Boys Like Girls, another Stylist LA favorite. They will be playing Club Nokia October 27th, so bust out your most tubular snap bracelets and raddest fanny pack. Until then enjoy this playlist that features some of our favorite Cobra songs.
