Cover Drive Unveil 'Explode' Video Featuring Dappy - Watch Now

Barbados four-piece Cover Drive have unveiled the new video to their track ‘Explode’ - and it features none other than ex-N Dubz star Dappy.

Cover Drive have a gift for writing amazing, unique pop songs and ‘Explode’ is no exception. It follows on from the band’s previous UK chart smashes ‘Twilight’, which rocketed straight to the top of the charts at the beginning of the year, their last single ‘Sparks’, and their debut ‘Lick Ya Down’. Having already built a devoted following in their native Barbados, the UK and beyond, Cover Drive have global domination firmly in their sights.

‘Explode’ infuses the band’s zesty Bajan roots with a vibrant feel-good rhythm that is sure to bring the sun to British shores after the most miserable summer on record - a definitive sound dubbed ‘carib-pop‘ that’s every bit as unique and distinctive as each of these four talented musicians.

Cover Drive will be performing at Hyde Park and Victoria Park for the BT London Live on July 31st and then onto V Festival for August 18th and 19th. In addition they will be supporting Kelly Clarkson on her arena tour throughout October and will be joining the JLS boys on their tour in August and September. You’ll also hear the band featured on Far East Movement’s ‘Turn Up The Love’, currently moving up the iTunes chart.

They’re one of the most exciting, most talked about new pop bands of 2012. There’s nothing else quite like Barbados’ latest exports Cover Drive right now, but don’t take our word for it: over 14 million video views on YouTube/VEVO, three UK Top Ten singles including a No.1 and a Twitter following that has hit 80,000 in just six months. The band release their fourth single,‘Explode’ through Polydor Records on August 26th.
