“Big Pop is a song about breaking the fourth wall with regards to all things music,” bassist Nick Sebastiano said of the new track in a statement. “It’s about letting go of the more serious habits of being a music fan, as well as the serious habits of being a musician. It’s good to have overwhelming feelings about art that you enjoy, and it’s good to enjoy your own art.”
“We put together the lyric video as extension of that sentiment, hoping to embrace the vulnerability that comes along with loving music,” he continued. “It’s okay to ‘sing-along’ to your own songs. It’s probably healthy in the same way that it’s healthy to enjoy good times while you’ve got them. We felt it fitting to pair this song with some phone videos of good times that we’ve shared together as a group.”
New Music and Big Pop arrives on February 19 via Run for Cover. Previously, the band released the singles ‘New Music’ (which was Samia’s pick in our feature 21 Artists on the Songs That Got Them Through 2020) and ‘I Know You’re Wrong’.
