With all the affected bullshit out there in the music world, coming across something genuine has become somewhat of a rarity. Nothing Cobra Collective does is necessarily original, but it needn't be if what this band is doing is true enough to its cause.... and its cause is producing loud, raucous-yet-controlled, politically-tinged rock music.
Veterans of the DC rock scene, since 2007 Cobra Collective has combined a post-punk vibe with a genuine desire to incite its audience. Shut-up, stand up, move. This sense of provocation towards the typically passive DC crowd permeates the atmosphere at each and every show.
Gone from each set are the typical put-on vocals, the phony airs, the overdone fop, and the rich-kid-sense-of-entitlement-made-possible-by-parental-subsidy that hovers over so many of the "full time" bands in DC these days. For that reason, Cobra Collective might seem a little out of place in its digs, but that's not such a bad thing.
