The Big Moon reveal video for ‘The Road’

We recently brought you The Big Moon’s latest success of a single ‘The Road’ as our Track of the Day. Now they have a brilliant video to delight our eyes as well as our ears.

The band find themselves in a generation game set up with the track’s booming percussion laying wake the simple execution and only emphasising the band’s honest delivery. With cameos ranging from hammers to inflatable flamingos it’s fair to say it’s an instant favourite.

Here’s what the band had to say. “We loved making this video. It was super DIY and on a really low budget, but so many amazing people helped us out that, looking at the final clip, you’d never really know. We went to the local hardware store and got a load of MDF and some celtic green paint, then spent a week designing and building all these little booths – sawing, screwing, drilling, painting, swearing, drinking, dribbling etc. 

“It involved a lot of splinters, a lot of birthday cake, and a lot of love, and thank goodness for our dear, creative, talented and generous friends Archie Sinclair and John Fitzpatrick, without whom we would have turned to jelly. 

“Also RIP Nicky Byrne, the goldfish, who ate himself to death two weeks ago.”
