I really didn’t have a clue about these guys til they released ‘Good Girls Go Bad’ and worked with budding recording artist Leighton Meester, or more famously known as the actress who plays Blair Waldorf in the hit CW series – Gossip Girl.
So here’s the rundown, Cobra Starship is a band composed of lead vocalist Gabe Saporta – who is cute BTW and actually the reason why I’m posting about them 😉 . I find him really adorable and HOT!; he’s the guy in the cool glasses at the center. Then you have bassist Alex Suarez, the guy on the left with the shades, Nate Novarro on drums ( the guy in the pink bonnet), the only girl Victoria Asher on keytar and finally Ryland Blackinton, the guitarist wearing the shades on the right.
The band is currently on their 3rd album already entitled Hot Mess where ‘GGGB’ was taken from released this year. Their first record While The City Sleeps, We Rule The Streets was released in 2006 and they were featured on the soundtrack of the movie Snakes On A Plane. A year later they released their follow-up record ¡Viva La Cobra!. I’m just getting to know their songs and I find them really, really COOL, hip and fun. Their music is a blend of pop, punk, alternative with a lil’ bit of techno. They’re up for 2 Moonmans this year including Best Pop Video going head to head with pop icons Beyonce, Britney and Gaga, I’m kind of on the fence with this one – hope they make an appearance though or better yet perform! 🙂
