SUPPORT FOR PREVIOUS SINGLES ‘BIG WORLD’ & ‘FIND ANOTHER YOU’
“Synth melodies that riddle amongst its funk grooves and hook-y choruses plucked straight out of an old-school electro-pop delight only brought forward into the future”.
– Pilerats (AUS)
“Huge feel good pop vibes. I’ve transported back to a dancefloor circa 2010 and this is getting dropped between La Roux, Ou Est Le Swimming Pool, and Art vs Science”.
– Gemma Pike – triple j (AUS)
“Absolute banger, I LOVE this!”.
– Alex Baker – Kerrang Radio (UK)
Following on from the release of their internationally praised singles ‘Big World‘ and ‘Find Another You‘, Melbourne four-piece indie-pop band MOBS have started their new year with another stunningly colourful new single ‘I’ll Be Back‘.
The track instantly captivates with flowing synths and guitars, before bursting into life with its swinging style and punchy drums, then giving way to lead singer Jordan Clarey. Massive hooks fill the choruses, accompanied by the tracks infectious swinging beat, not leaving out Jordan’s backing vocals giving the perception of backing group singing and clicking their fingers in time with the beat.
Jordan talks about the inspiration behind “I’ll Be Back”:
“This is based on the character Kyle Reese coming back in time to protect Sarah Connor from the Terminator. It’s about loving someone despite the space, time or distance between them. It’s still subtle enough to feel like a love song, while also giving props to the characters from the film.”
To coincide with the release, the band are heading stateside to perform in the USA and Canada alongside pop-rock juggernauts Set It Off, following on from performances throughout China earlier in November. This continues on from a furious touring schedule, which has seen them support the likes of The Dangerous Summer (USA) The Maine (USA), Deaf Havana (UK), Never Shout Never (USA) and Stand Atlantic (AUS).
“The nostalgic pop sound that we have created is something that we have been working on for a long time and it’s amazing that we have the opportunity to take these songs overseas and showcase them to people on the other side of the world” mentions bass player Scott MacDougall.
In the coming weeks MOBS will reveal an accompanying music visual for ‘I’ll Be Back’.
