Cobra Starship – We’ve talked to Gabe, their lead singer, about the concerts in Pop Music Festival
Nice, funny and considerate: these are the three adjectives that describe so well the lead singer of Cobra Starship, Gabe. At least, that was the impression I had while interviewing him by phone. He talked about the concerts in São Paulo (June 23) and in Rio (June 27), beyond his love for Brazil. After the conversation, I’m a bigger fan of the band now. Check out the interview and tell me: isn’t he lovely or not?
TT: Let’s talk a little about the expectations of playing here in Brazil again.
GS: Every time I play in Brazil, it’s so good that goes far beyond the expectations, so, I try not to have them anymore. I’m so excited to play here again, I love this country, the last time we came was for a small concert and we had a big crowd, always dedicated, so, it always goes beyond expectations.
TT: Are you going to have free time to visit some places here?
GS: Yes! I’m so excited for that. We’re going to have six or seven free days, it’s enough time to walk around. I wanna go to the beach.
TT: What’s your best memory from the last time you came?
GS: I remember that we opened Justin Bieber’s concert and there was a party in Rio, a very good one. We had lots of fun!
TT: Do you speak something in portuguese?
GS: I know how to say “obrigado (thanks)”, “você quer (from the song “Você quer?” by Mulher Melão – it means “Do you wanna?”)”, I don’t know how to say “sorry” in Portuguese…
TT: It’s “Desculpe”
GS: Desculpe? Oh yeah, so I know some things because my Spanish is good, so, it makes some sense to me.
TT: Do you know that you have lots of fans here? The song “You Make Me Feel…” has been a hit for a long time…
GS: Wow, that’s something amazing to hear! So nice, it isn’t always that we have the chance to know this kind of information. Brazil is really special to us. When we play here, the fans’ reaction is amazing; it’s very exciting to us.
TT: You’re going to play in a festival with Kelly Clarkson, J. Lo and Michel Teló. The crowd will be very miscellaneous. What do you think about it?
GS: We were talking about it the other day, when I was asked the same thing. I believe that it’s super important for the band. We never wanted to be a labeled band that fits in one style, you know? We wanted to be able to play in festivals like that, with a mixed audience, and at the same time, to incorporate different sounds to ours. Because it gives us the ability to play to everyone around the world. We did a concert in Guatemala and it worked a lot, and so we can do it also in Vegas, more an electronic thing. It’s important to us as a band.
TT: Your vídeos are always really fun. How far goes your participation while thinking about the videos?
GS: It’s something big, we interact a lot! In our most recent video, “#1Nite”, I wanted it to be about those unforgettable nights. Well, the song is called “#1Nite”, so I had the idea of making a really joyful one, funny, that was in a party, a club…I had myself inspired by the movie “True Romance”, with Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette, by its style, clothes…Our video has a big influence by this movie.

Let’s just all agree that the weekend has officially arrived early, thanks to Cobra Starship and their amazingly addictive dance anthem “#1nite.” Originally released way back in June ’11, the band has outdone themselves- yes, again-with an updated version of the pop jam and a brand new video. Featuring emerging Canadian singer My Name Is Kay on vocals along with Starship frontman Gabe Saporta, the vid just premiered yesterday on MTV. It’s filled with road trips, summer loving, and a major gas station dress up party. Check out the best looks…
The dynamic duo hits the local gas station for a round of dress up (don’t question it), sporting tacky-kitsch clothes like Hawaiian t-shirts, day-glo colored blouses, and a crazy feathered headdress (culturally insensitive collar tug). Gabe’s orange tropical top and printed hat are definitely WAY different from his signature slim suits and vintage jackets, but they’re totally in sych with the whole Hawaiian print trend AND snapback resurgence happening right now. Gotta admit- we’re digging it. Kay’s trying on a traffic-stopping tangerine blouse, which she totally works (or should we say, werks) later in the video. Hello ’80s throwback!
The ’80s-inspired madness continues in Las Vegas when the couple stages in impromptu rooftop dance party. Kay’s rocking a cropped turtleneck, high-waisted shorts, and serious bling. We love how she’s channeling her inner Gwen Stefani with a front hair roll- can we bring back this retro fabulous look, please? P.S. If you want to copy Kay’s reto-glam look yourself, hit up your local American Apparel…. we just did, and they’ve got both the crop top AND the shorts in stock! On the guy front ,Gabe looks a little more like the dude we know and love in a blue and white polka dot button-down, a navy jacket (collared popped, obviously) and skinny white pants.
