Today, alt-pop duo Mob Rich reveals the video for “Funeral,” their latest single taken from their debut album, Why No Why.
The video, directed by the band’s frequent collaborator Jack Dytrych, follows Maxwell Joseph and Connor Pledger as they secretly drive out to the desert in the middle of the night with body bags and shovels. To the viewer’s surprise, they end up burying each other alive, as they sing, “This is the funeral for my dark side. It’s the last time. Yeah it’s goodbye. I will bury you deep, 6 foot under my feet.”
Why No Why also features the band’s singles, “Everything and Nothing,” “Hell Yeah” and “Made To Fall,” as well as fan-favorite tracks, “Yoko Ono,” “Loser” and “friends*” feat. Bishop Briggs. American Songwriter praised Why No Why, saying its “charming melancholy, adventurous soundscapes, and big hooks they conjure are built for everyone,” while MUD Magazine proclaimed, “[Why No Why] is filled with their unique observations about the world, their infectious optimism, and the authenticity that characterizes them as artists” and HAZZE Media called it “the perfect album to listen to with the windows down in summer.”
Mob Rich has amassed over 50 million-plus streams to date and received praise from Billboard, Funny Or Die, Noisey, Alt Press, Ones To Watch, and many more, with People recently proclaiming, “Mob Rich are creating ‘new anthems for the outcast.’” Next up, the band will return to live touring this fall, including festival sets at Lollapalooza, Life Is Beautiful, Austin City Limits and more to be announced soon.
