Every so often you get wind of a collaboration that is so wild and so unexpected, that there is an audible collective industry gasp. This is one such time.
Brit DJ duo Snakehips (known for their R&B-electronic tunes) are no stranger to a jackpot collab (previous alumni include Chance The Rapper, Anderson Paak, MØ, Joey Bada$$ and plenty others), but their recent release, “Gucci Rock N Rolla,” gets the wildcard award. Drumroll please… we have Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo, as well as cheeky chappy rapper KYLE.
The result? An addictive pop-rock bop with definite surf-psychedelic vibes. And we are absolutely obsessed. Oh, and wait until you clock the Napoleon Dynamite-style visuals, which see the lads injecting their groove into a school dance.
“‘Gucci Rock N Rolla’ is a song we wrote about being a misfit but being cool with it,” explain the duo. “Just being comfortable doing your own thing and knowing that you were badass even if no one thought you were.”
