Cobra Starship's Victoria Asher Debuts Solo Material

In November of last year, Cobra Starship decided to break up. Frontman Gabe Saporta broke the news to Billboard, telling the publication:

"To me, the most rewarding thing about Cobra Starship is that we were successful not because we played the game, but because we broke the rules and paved our own way. There was something magical about how everything came together, and we were blessed to have your support and to see our dreams materialize. However, I know that sometimes when things go on for too long, that magic can start to fade . . . And as hard as it is for all of us, I would rather close this chapter of our lives and be able to look back on it fondly than allow something that means so much to us stagnate. My only hope is that we were able to be the backdrop to some of your fondest memories, and that those experiences have positively impacted you in a permanent way."

Apparently, the band isn't just sitting around bummed, like the rest of us. The only female voice in the band, keytarist Victoria Asher, is back with a solo project. It's called Vicky-T (a moniker she's used before). Get your first taste with "Protect This Love," above.

Her sound is quite different from Cobra Starship but there are similarities. The entire song is built around a really retro-leaning synth riff, but Asher's voice is much sweeter than Saporta's, making for an interesting new sound.

Listen and watch above. When you're done there, watch Gabe Saporta admit to starting some weird Justin Bieber rumors in this video.
