UNVEILS NEW EP
Multi-faceted experimental artist COBRAH has shared her long awaited label debut EP, “SUCCUBUS”, available now via Big Beat Records HERE.
The arrival of “SUCCUBUS” is celebrated with the premiere of brand new songs, including “TEQUILA” “BAD POSITION,” “ACTIVATE,” and “10/10,” all of which – like the other songs on the 7-track EP – feature riveting cover art displaying a different form of succubi (a demon that assumes a female form to attack and have sex with men, especially appearing in their dreams).
“SUCCUBUS” was heralded last month with the divinely empowered single, “FEMININE ENERGY,”. An official music video – which continues the shocking tale of alien impregnation begun in the official visual to COBRAH’s recent smash club anthem, “SUCK”. In addition, “SUCCUBUS includes” the feverish “MANIC”.
COBRAH is heading to Australia In December-January for a run of festival dates that will see her perform at Beyond The Valley, Wildlands Festival and Field Day, as well as headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne.
Five years ago, Clara, aka COBRAH, for the first time squeezed herself into a black latex catsuit. On top of it she added a corset, cinched tight. Really tight. In this moment, she says, she’d “never been so thrilled about anything. It was like falling in love.”
It wasn’t just about the thrill of skintight fetish wear. It was that in this moment, Clara fully transformed into COBRAH, the experimental electronic artist that’s since become not only her alter-ego, but a globally celebrated vocalist, producer, fashion iconoclast and cultural boundary-pusher whose sleek, playful, often subversive views of sexuality and female power emanate from every note, every purred vocal and every clothing stich. The multidisciplinary artist grew up in Gothenburg, Sweden’s second largest city, but soon moved to her country’s capitol. It was there COBRAH became immersed in Stockholm’s fetish scene, which inspired and shaped her already ambitious creativity.
2019 saw the arrival of her debut EP, “ICON”, highlighted by the lead single, “U KNOW ME,” which saw featured placement on EA’s blockbuster FIFA 22, as well as the breakout hit, “IDFKA,” joined by a stunning companion video later honored with a “Music Video of the Year” nomination from the Swedish Grammis.
The self-titled “COBRAH” EP arrived in 2021, self-released on the artist’s own GAGBALL label. Hailed by NME as “a self-assured slab of sexy, celebratory wonky-pop,” the EP saw COBRAH’s star ascend via bangers like “GOOD PUSS,” which earned more than 25M worldwide streams and a prestigious Grammis nod for “Electro/Dance of the Year.” Moreover, the irresistible track was featured in the trailer to A24’s acclaimed 2022 film, Bodies Bodies Bodies, and was recently remixed by like-minded Chicago rapper CupcakKe.
In addition to international press attention spanning Out to i-D, COBRAH – who recently lit up stages in London and Stockholm alongside Charli XCX – has seen worldwide support from such top dance playlists as Spotify’s “mint” and “Dance Rising,” along with dynamic collaborations with high fashion brands like Jean Paul Gaultier. On Tik Tok, COBRAH’s official sounds have been used by the likes of Jeffree Star, Sonia Mayu, Taylor Tomlinson, Sugar and Spice, Brianna Chickenfry, and more.
