MOBS, an indie-pop act from Melbourne, Australia, has shared the official music video for their latest single “Big World“.
“Big world is all about no matter how bad a situation can be there’s always something better on the horizon,” explains lead singer Jordan Clarey. “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, we wanted to emphasis the feeling of being small in a big world. A reference to the movie the song is written about but also showing that together we can go up against all odds.”
Drawing inspiration from both the musical and cinematic era of the 1980s, MOBS has spent a lot of time crafting their niche sound. Mixing old: Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Billy Ocean, Tears for Fears; with new: COIN, LANY, LAUV, The 1975, M83. Writing songs from the perspective of main characters in specific classic 80’s films is just one of the ways the band intends to stand out, bringing another dimension to their story.
“We have always been a huge fan of the 80’s era musically and cinematically,” says drummer Matt Purcell, “To gel these two concepts together we believe it represents our vision within the band”.
MOBS is gearing up for performance slots at Summerfest in Sydney, Australia on December 7 and will be at The Great Escape, an iconic festival held in the UK in 2020. MOBS have toured with bands like The Maine, Deaf Havana, Never Shout Never, and Stand Atlantic.
