Buzzing alt-pop duo Moby Rich have released their new single “Loser”. Listen to it now below.
With gritty claps, percussive guitar and a sing-song-y hook, the track builds towards the relatable chant, “Hey, I’m a loser, hallelujah, but I think I’m going to be okay.” Quite fittingly, the song is featured in the latest installment of filmmaker Kevin Smith’s classic Jay and Silent Bob series, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot—in theaters on October 15th.
Of the meaning behind the song, Moby Rich says, “We wrote ‘Loser’ because we wanted to have our own anthem to let people know it’s okay to be a weirdo and to not be understood by everyone. It was one of those songs that wrote itself because of how much we believe in what it stands for. It’s so easy to get caught up in what everybody thinks is cool and forget that all the things that make us unique are the parts people remember about us. No one is remembered for just blending in. Be unapologetically you, forget what’s ‘cool.’”
They continue, saying, “Thinking you’re a loser can be a lonely feeling, but the funny thing is, we all feel like losers at some point. So why don’t we celebrate another thing that brings us all a little closer?”
“Loser” is the follow up to the duo’s Songs We Didn’t Write released last month—featuring their own unique interpretations of Weezer’s iconic “Say It Ain’t So” and Lizzo’s chart-topping “Truth Hurts.”
Next up, Moby Rich is set to hit the road with Matt Maeson on “The Day You Departed Tour,” beginning October 29th in New York at Brooklyn Steel and continuing through Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and more.
