New Music: Big Ups Share ‘Fear’ Video

Big Ups

Big Ups’ new album Two Parts Together out May 18th, 2018 on Exploding in Sound Records. Announce West Coast Tour.

Brooklyn post-hardcore outfit Big Ups have shared the second single from their upcoming album Two Parts Together. Titled ‘Fear’, the track displays the band’s desire to temper their post-hardcore with more restraint and melody than most of their peers in the genre. Further expanding on the promise of the first single from the record ‘PPP’, the song shows that the band are entirely dissatisfied with sitting still. This pleases us.

Of the song and video, singer Joe Galarraga says: “A lot of this album focuses on liminality and takes place in liminal spaces. ‘Fear’ talks about the unknown and turns it into anxiety – dealing with uncertainties before going to sleep and the difficulty of navigating a new day when confronted with the harshness of reality. This was an interesting song to write because the second verse mirrors the first in such a way that attempts to make the anxieties of the morning and night indistinguishable.

The video for ‘Fear’ was pieced together by Brendan using clips he found on YouTube, as well as videos that all of us have taken of our shows and tours over the years. Some of the video dates back as early as 2010; there is footage from our very first show included! It was a fun way to catalog and highlight some of our favorite shows, venues, tours, videographers, and memories, and we hope others can enjoy it, too.”
