Firsties and Faves: Urban Cone

Erotic dreams involving pasta and pesto. Yum.

You can take the video for "Come Back to Me" one of two ways: It'll make you burn with jealousy, you hate your life, and wish you too were in Swedish quintet Urban Cone. Or it'll inspire you to book that vacay to Lesbos you keep talking about. WHAT ARE YOU DOING? Go to Greece already! Or anywhere with crystal cerulean waters and ivory sand. The time is now.

However do not let this video encourage you to use a selfie stick. No. Put that down! We spoke to the indie-pop troupe—that's Emil, Rasmus, Magnus, Tim, and Jacob—about their firsties and faves.

First erotic dream:
Emil and pasta pesto.

Favorite position:
Crab stand.

First broken bone:
Rasmus broke his leg when he pushed out in a ski slope at age two.

Favorite body part:
Ear lobe.

First physical flight:
Rasmus and Tim almost flew at age 11 when they jumped off a cliff.

Favorite place on earth:

First person in the band you'd save from a burning boat:
Jacob. We can't let his hair get wet.

Favorite smell:
Raz: Sandalwood.
Jake: Mold.
Emil: Fresh newly opened Pokemon cards.
Tim: Gasoline.
Magnus: Peach Wunderbaum.

First time you threw up from too much of anything:
Jacob ate like three pounds meat when we were at a celebrating dinner with the record label. He threw up once he got home.

Favorite music to cry to:
Bullet For My Valentine - "Tears Don't Fall"

First rule you broke:
First rule we broke as a band was when we stole an ice cream from one of the first shows we had. They threatened to press charges.

Favorite song to dance to:
Dolly Style - "Hello Hi."
