Press Release


For Immediate Release


(Aug. 4, 2017 – LOS ANGELES, CA) – Following up their red hot breakout smash “Love Like We Used To” [feat. Nateur], multi-platinum songwriting, production, and remix team Captain Cuts serve up their brand new single “Cocaina” [feat. Rich The Kid & Daniels] today.

Buy/Listen to the single HERE via Epic Records.

Chopping up lines of funk guitars, island swagger, and atomic pop, the song settles into an addictive audio groove that’s immediately impossible to shake. Rich The Kid and Daniels join the fun with catchy cameos before culminating on the intoxicating chant—“Co-ca-i-na!”

About the song, Ryan McMahon of Captain Cuts shares, “We had just come back from a week of writing in Nicaragua with Daniels and a couple friends. Sitting in our dark studio in L.A., we were imagining ourselves back on the beach in Nicaragua and came up with that acoustic guitar riff and all of the Latin percussion. The vibe definitely felt like the lyric needed to be fun and not serious. So, we started talking about falling in love with a party girl who may or may not be a drug dealer…And ‘Cocaina’ was born.”

It’s the ultimate party anthem…

It’s been a busy summer for the boys. They performed their debut show at Summerfest on July 4th with The Chainsmokers and produced the new Neon Trees single “Feel Good,” also out today. Stay tuned for the unveiling of the fittingly outrageous and awesome “Cocaina” music video, premiering very soon as well as more surprises from these pop mavericks.

With over 10 million cumulative Spotify streams and counting, “Love Like We Used To” properly introduced the group’s patented “Retro-Future Pop. Entertainment Weekly called it one of the “100 Best Songs of 2016,” proclaiming, “Good luck trying to sit still.” Idolator described it as “an unashamedly romantic and radio-friendly earworm, and Fuse dubbed it, “a major tune.” It’s already amassed over 6 million cumulative streams on Spotify so far.
