Screen Shot 2020-08-27 at 4.39.48 PM
Los Angeles-based/Milwaukee-bred Big Mother Gig have been making waves since 2018’s “No More Questions”, while wrapping a West Coast tour opening for Gin Blossoms. The LP featured Dicky Barrett (Mighty Mighty Bosstones) and Britta Phillips (Luna) on vocals. It was praised by Brooklyn Vegan, NPR/The Current, Paste, The Big Takeover, Alternative Press, Under The Radar, No Depression and more. Since reforming in 2016, Big Mother Gig has performed with Gin Blossoms, Soccer Mommy, The Posies, Luna, Peelander-Z , Alvarez Kings, The Yawpers and more. This year sees and hears the band making a big splash in the music world as their earthly sound carries you away. We had the pleasure of speaking with the band for an exclusive Video Voyageur which you’ll find below!
Tell us the story of this song, why did you choose to visualize this song specifically? 
Well, we knew we wanted to promote this song with a strong visual as opposed to just the song itself. It feels more like a video song to us.  It’s a bit more melancholy and slower than our usual sound.

What was the inspiration behind this video(visuals, storyline, etc.)? 

Found footage. We found some footage from a prior music video shoot and it just seemed to work well with this song. We tacked on some live shots in the beginning and the end and, voila, we had a music video!

What was the process of making this video?

See above 🙂 – no seriously, it was sort of a magic moment where you just realize something works and you go with it. Kind of like the first time you watch “Wizard Of Oz” while listening to Pink Floyd.
