Mixing up R&B, indie rock, soul and jazz, Charleston based quintet Little Bird have released a new video for their single Mega Hot Super Babe, and we’re delighted to premiere it right here on Backseat Mafia.
Of the track, frontman Jay Hurtt says “While the song itself is about the archetype of the untouchable woman, the video is meant to highlight a common struggle that every woman we know has dealt with, by fantasizing an ideological solution. Working with a limited budget, we drew inspiration from 80’s budget-slasher style ‘Giallo’ films, and loved the juxtaposition of a happy song with gruesome visuals.”
It’s a little ray of funk infused sunshine, which just hints towards 80s yacht rock (think Robert Palmer / Hall and Oates) as these frankly gorgeous melodies are adorned by popping bass lines, sly guitar figure that hop in and out and these glowing synths which cascade over it all.
The accompanying retro-horror flick video sees all the band members encounter a woman too hot to handle, leading to their deadly demise. Check it out, here
