Making a huge impact so far in 2022, Perth-based rockers Big Orange are back to dish up another exhilarating rock rover with their all-new single ‘Mum Says I’m Okay’ (out June 3).
Delivering their third release of the year behind beloved alt-rock singles ‘Love’s Not Enough’ and ‘By The Dozen’, both turning the heads of tastemakers across the country and beyond, Big Orange refuse to take their foot off the accelerator, unleashing non-stop rollicking rock that packs a punch.
New single ‘Mum Says I’m Okay’ fires up with an all-out alt-rock guitar riff, quickly joined by resounding drums as Daniel Davis’ vocals give off that 90’s alt-rock tinge. Seeped in a passionate optimism for wanting the best out of life, the distinctively Big Orange chorus arrives in all of its hook-filled glory, bringing a rousing rock flavour to wonderfully relatable lyrics.
The message behind ‘Mum Says I’m Okay’ is simple yet powerful – block out the haters and do what’s right for you. Basically, keep going, you’re doing great.
“I think everyone with a passion can relate to these lyrics,” bandmate Emma Adams adds.
“Daniel showed me this track a few months ago and I dug the shit outta it. It’s a slow burn with a superbly hooky chorus when it hits.”
Big Orange have been killing it lately, with the band’s previous releases seeing massive support from US College Radio, National broadcaster IndieXL (Netherlands), Triple J, Double J, Triple J Unearthed, Scenestr, LA On Lock, Backseat Mafia, The AU Review, theMusic, Pilerats, XPress Magazine, Junction Records, RTRFM, FBi Radio, 4ZZZ, 3RRR, 2SER, The Most FM (NZ), Radio Wigwam (UK), Radio RaBe (CHE) and more.
This recent success only adding to their previous wins, including WAM Rock Song of the Year nomination in 2020, plus the group’s coveted support and festival slots including RTRFM flagship event In The Pines, WAMFest and the inaugural WAY WAY WEST Festival.
