Watch: Big Ups share dizzying ‘National Parks’ video

Big Ups share dizzying ‘National Parks’ video

The group’s latest release gets an elegantly choreographed accompanying clip.

N.Y. punks Big Ups have shared a video for ‘National Parks’, their latest single and the second track to be revealed from new album ‘Before A Million Universes’.

Following an incessantly boogieing protagonist through her daily routine, it’s a spiralling, dizzy depiction of the track’s themes. “This song is intended as a dedication to my mother,” says frontman Joe Galarraga. “It includes little vignettes about the time before I was born, after I moved out of her house, the future, etc. While the song aims to honor her life and her effort spent on raising my sister and my self, the coda also serves as a reflective piece about the person I want to be.”

Watch the video below - it links up with ‘Capitalized’ in previewing ‘Before A Million Universes’. That’s set for release on March 4th on Brace Yourself Records / Tough Love / Exploding In Sound, and Big Ups play the following UK/EU dates in celebration:
