Single of the Day: Urban Cone “Old School” (2017)

Get around the latest from Sweden’s Urban Cone today; their latest single “Old School” is dripping in funky beats and guitarwork. It’s a little bit of a new direction for the alt-pop group but nonetheless, they’ve got an added sense of swag draped over the top of an already impressive sense of artistry.

Says vocalist Emil Gustafsson, “Old School” hones in on a ‘lack of romance’ when it comes to young people in today’s society.

“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.”
