MOBS Reveal Video for New Single ‘Big World’
The Melbourne indie-pop band MOBS have taken inspiration from ‘Honey, I Shrunk The Kids’ in their latest track Big World.
Big World has a nostalgic happy feel to it, 80s synth-pop blended with layers of guitar and a soft drum beat, giving it a feeling that all is going to be alright in the world. Inspired by ‘Honey, I Shrunk The Kids’, the single’s artwork is an ode to the film’s own illustrations and the song itself was written with the film in mind.
Lead singe Jordan Clarey explains:
‘Big World’ is based on the movie ‘Honey I Shrunk The Kids’, I decided to base the song on the subtle romance playing out throughout the movie, but more so taking the concept of feeling small in a big world, and overcoming life struggles with someone by your side no matter the odds…
Although the track is heavily based on the film, the music video takes a different spin. MOBS went for a simple performance on a rooftop, showing the skyline of their home city. With the video being just one take, it gives an added feel of honesty.
We wanted to showcase Melbourne’s skyline as it is our home that we all love. On top of the visual aspect of the skyline and being on a rooftop and wanted to emphasise that feeling of being small in a big world.
Signing to Rude Records back in January it’s clear these are one to watch, catch them at The Great Escape in Brighton next year.
