OBB is hot on the music scene and this band of brothers just released their third single of 2019! Get the scoop (haha, get it) on the meaning behind their newest single, “Foolish,” the visuals for the new track and what we can look out for from the band in the near future.
Thank you guys so much for talking to us! So you’re all brothers, but how did you all end up making music together? Tell us a little background about yourself.
We all grew up playing the piano, so we have always enjoyed music. But as we got into our teenage years, we started playing different instruments, and that allowed us to play together as a brother band. The first time we ever played together was for a battle of the bands that our dad signed us up for without us knowing. He came home from work and said, “It’s tonight so start getting ready!” That day was just the beginning.
Congratulations on your new song “Foolish”! What’s the meaning behind this track?
We find that we often tend to act a little foolish around our crush. You might stay up super late on the phone or drive a crazy amount of miles to see them for just a few hours. I think Buddy the Elf said it best, “I’m in love, I’m in love, and I don’t care who knows it.” So that’s the feeling we wanted to give this song. You might act foolish for your love or crush, but who cares?
We’ve heard you guys have a video coming out soon too, can you give us a sneak peek on what we can expect from the visuals?
We had an amazing time shooting the music video for “Foolish”. We wrote and directed this video ourselves, and we can’t wait for people to see it. It’s a video that has the same vibe as the song. It’s fun, fast-paced, and a little silly. We got to shoot in Monumeny Valley in Utah, so the scenery for the video is unbelievable!
And this is what, you guys third single of the year? Can we lookout for an EP or album anytime soon?
Yeah, we are hoping to have the EP out next year, followed shortly by the album!
How would you say “Foolish” differs from your earlier singles like “7 Billion” and “Close By?”
This single is definitely more of that fun band song! I would say it’s more in the realm of “Mona Lisa” and “Sweater”.
How’s life on tour? Any new cities you all got to visit that you’ve never been to before?
We have a great time out on the road seeing new places! Monument Valley [Arizona] was a new location for us! Also, we got to play in Las Vegas for the first time at the Bite Of Vegas and we can’t wait to go back!
What is your favorite part of being on tour?
Getting to see the country, meeting fans, and making new fans!
And you guys recently performed on Good Day LA, any other live performances or shows coming up after tour ends?
Yeah, we will be hitting some more colleges and then looking at our next tour soon!
Can fans look forward to anything in the upcoming year?
Listen to “Foolish” below!
