Perth’s Big Orange released the driving alt-rock banger ‘By The Dozen’ (Out Jan 21) just the other week and are now pairing it with its suave accompanying music video.
With its nostalgic old school rock ‘n’ roll, Big Orange’s seductive, fuzzed-out number is ultimately a plea to all the kids to return to rock ‘n’ roll. Fittingly, the music video follows a rock-loving kid bursting with swagger and that kind of confidence that one only gets when listening to rock music.
Past his curfew, decked out in blacked-out glasses and over the ear headphones, he walks the streets to the park’s playground where, like a montage, jams out to his favourite new tune from Big Orange. Giving the video classic rock energy is a DIY production that saw the entire clip shot and edited on an iPhone by band member, Emma Adams. Adams states:
“The star of the vid is my nephew Bailey. He’s a big Big O fan, always hustling to the front at shows (when allowed) and likes to be the first to hear unreleased music. We shot at a park across from my house using my phone with a head torch taped to it. He found those sunnies on the swing when we first scoped out the location.”
Big Orange’s previous releases have seen support from Triple J, Double J, Triple J Unearthed, theMusic, Pilerats, XPress Magazine, Junction Records, RTRFM, FBi Radio, 4ZZZ, 3RRR and more, as well as being nominated for the WAM Rock Song of the Year in 2020. The band have also played coveted support and festival slots including RTRFM flagship event In The Pines, WAMFest and the inaugural WAY WAY WEST Festival.
