Swedish alt-pop band Urban Cone has signed to Interscope Records and released new single “Old School” on Interscope Records/Universal Sweden. The single, which gives listeners a sample of their new sound influenced by hip-hop beats and funky guitars, is now available via all digital partners.
Lyrically “Old School,” makes social commentary on the lack of romance among young people, says vocalist/bassist Emil Gustafsson. “There are a lot of dating apps and it’s all about hooking up as quickly as possible. We wanted to make a song that said, ‘Let’s do it old school, like the old days.’ When you meet a girl you’re interested in, call her on the phone. Ask her for a date. Give her flowers. Take her on a drive; something more than just swiping on a screen. Technology makes it so simple that it cuts out the romantic feeling of getting to know someone.”
Urban Cone are currently in the studio working on their new album for Interscope Records/Universal Sweden.
