New York synth-pop quintet and MTV Posted artist Cobra Starship have been having a very good week. Last Sunday, the group performed their summer hit “You Make Me Feel…” with Britney Spears‘ favorite rapper/singer Sabi at the 2011 VMAs pre-show. (Check out some photos from their rehearsal.)The following Tuesday, the group released their fourth album Night Shades, featuring “#1Nite (One Night),” “Fool Like Me” and the Mac Miller-assisted “Middle Finger.” Yeah, we bring Posted artists together. We’re nice like that.
For fans of “You Make Me Feel…,” we got you. If you missed the band’s performance last week — or just want to see it again — we’ve got Cobra Starship’s live performance below, beginning with lead cobra Gabe Saporta and Sabi walking through the crowd and performing the song’s first half among fans and paparazzi. The pair serenaded each other, with Saporta whipping out his own camera to take shots of Sabi during her performance before the duo joined their fellow bandmates on the main stage.
After that, check out the band’s official video for the song, which sees a photo booth upstage the band members themselves. “I look all over the world for [a girl], and our world is the nightclub,” Saporta told MTV. “The video is about the photo booth. It’s just not any photo booth; it’s a photo booth that tells you how you’re really feeling. That’s the main star of the video.” Always nice to show love to your fellow castmates.
Night Shades is out now via Fueled by Ramen.
