It was a sad day when Brooklyn’s favorite electronic indie trio, Mobius Band, decided to go on hiatus. But thankfully at least one of its talented members – guitarist and vocalist, Ben Sterling – is still making music, albeit under a different name with new band members. Sterling, bassist Melissa Metrick, and drummer Ian Ainley comprise indie pop band Cookies. If the name isn’t appealing enough (who doesn’t like cookies?), just let the music speak for itself. Cookies’ creative cover of R&B veteran Janet Jackson’s “Love Will Never Do (Without You)” will leave you hungry for more – guaranteed.

It’s one thing to simply cover a song but another to create something entirely new without losing its vibe and key musical elements. In fact, Cookies enhances the best parts of “Love Will Never Do (Without You),” with bright, melodic vocals and a bouncy beat topped off by electronic dips and bubbles. The rhythm guitar adds the perfect amount of retro to this feel-good reworking of Jackson’s original hit. Listen (and dance along) below! (via Prefix)
