Directed by Louis Bhose, the same mind behind the visuals for previous track ‘Nothing Without You’. The video is another paint-splattered window in to the world of The Big Moon.
Speaking of the video, the band said: “We thought we’d give our friends the opportunity of a lifetime and let them hurl things at us while we tried to unflinchingly play the song. We spent the day having paint and flour and glitter and playing cards and plants and plastic forks and teddy bears and sponges thrown at us. I think it was quite a cathartic experience for everyone involved.”
Cupid is everything that The Big Moon have already promised and more. A track full of punch, verve and a knowing swagger, capped by vocalist Juliette Jackson’s wry snarl of a delivery, and her bandmates pin-sharp harmonies. It’s a smart and confident next step forward.
The band capped a fantastic run of the UK last week, including a seminal show at London’s 100 Club. The band head in to a heady summer of festival performances, followed by a full UK tour in support of the Mystery Jets. Tickets and further information are available below.
Cupid will be available on a limited run of vinyl on the 13th May.
