Premiere: A.D.K.O.B. get weird with ‘Jaded Little Babies’ video

October 16th 2019


Blurring lines between private and public, Sydney’s A Different Kind of Busy (A.D.K.O.B) have returned with another buoyant pop anthem, as well as a rousingly weird video to suit.

‘Jaded Little Babies’ is serving playful lyricism and catchy indie pop melodies, with a side of major motion picture. A.D.K.O.B. multi instrumentalist Mark Piccles says the band totally surrendered the song and accompanying creative license to video creators Tim Oxford and Simon Knox.

“They knocked our socks off with a wonderful idea and executed it even better than first proposed. Full credit to them.. they somehow made Jane and myself look like real actors.”

Video creators Tim and Simon said the inspiration for the David Lynch-esque video clip comes from an episode of Reply All.

“For the initial spark of the idea, we actually have to thank an episode of Reply All in which one of the hosts discloses his daily habit of having seated showers, something that proves highly divisive to the listeners. It started a long train of thinking about the weird private habits and foibles we all have and how these get amplified or diminished when in a relationship.” 

Watch the video for A.D.K.O.B.’s Jaded Little Babies below, and catch the band live at their upcoming EP launch.
