‘Big House’ is the first single from Don’t Worry’s debut album, Who Cares Anyway?.
The indie-rock band formed in 2014 and have since released a number of EPs, finding inspiration from artists such as Weezer, The Cure and Elliott Smith. ‘Big House’ has a modern sound and tackles the struggles that young people face in the late 2010s.
There’s a melancholy feel to the track and a sense of anxiety permeates it throughout, but crucially writers Ronan and Sam are able to find humour in the mundane which offsets the song’s moody tone.
The song’s video is also oddly comedic, following a man who is seemingly searching for someone or something in a typical British setting. The situation takes a turn for the worse for the man as the lyrics ‘I’m never coming back’ play on repeat, with the video ending in a bizarre and comically unsettling fashion.
‘Big House’ is a polished and catchy track with a simple but stylish video. Don’t Worry’s upcoming album was recorded and produced by long-time collaborator Bob Cooper and is set to be released on June 22nd 2018 via Specialist Subject Records.
