MOBS, an indie pop act from Melbourne, Australia have revealed a brand new single today. Fans can now stream “Big World” now below.
If the single artwork looks familiar, it’s because it is. The new single is based on the 1989 cult classic movie Honey, I Shrunk The Kids starring Rick Moranis. “I decided to base the song on the subtle romance playing out throughout the movie,” explains lead singer Jordan Clarey. “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”.
Drawing inspiration from both the musical and cinematic era of the 1980’s, MOBS have 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 intend to stand out, bringing another dimension to their story. “We have always been a huge fan of the 80’s era musical and cinematically” says drummer Matt Purcell, “To gel these two concepts together we believe it represents our vision within the band”.
A music video for the song will be released soon.
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.
