Emily Treadgold #3, Premiere Leave a Comment

OBB has been on our radar for a while now and we are beyond excited to premiere their gorgeous new video for "Close By" the song is the perfect summer slow dance. The video has a grainy aesthetic that brings up nostalgic memories and small magical moments. OBB's wives are featured throughout the video with real-life moments snapped on set which brings a whole new layer to the video.

How did OBB get started?

OBB: Being brothers, we tend to do a lot of things together. We enjoy playing music and creating music together. We found that when we played together, we had this great connection, so we started with a local Battle of the Bands, and that led to CBS' Battle of the Bands. And the rest is history!

What was the inspiration for this video?

OBB: The inspiration from this video came from us wanting to show the contrast between being away from our loved ones and how we are when we are with them. As musicians, we travel a lot, and we can’t always take our families with us.

What has been the biggest challenge for you in the music industry?

OBB: The biggest challenge is building a brand. Trying to get our name out as a new band can be difficult. There are so many great musicians out there, it can be tough to stick out from the crowd.

What’s your best piece of advice for young artists?

OBB: Make sure you pursue music because you love it and not to just become a rock star.

What’s next for you?

OBB: We have more music coming out, and we are getting ready to hit our fall tour. We are super excited! Make sure you keep up with us on our socials at @obb_music. (Twitter, Instagram)

    At 15 years old, I begged my mom to take me to Walmart to get Taylor Swift's debut deluxe album and I never turned back. This was my very first entry point to stan fandom. Growing up in Memphis, Tennessee I was exposed to a ton of music - from rapping 3 6 Mafia to bopping to Justin Timberlake's solo discography. Now, in LA have a day job working in nonprofit development, but by night, I'm a full-fledged fangirl. I'll listen to generally any genre, but I'm a sucker for a good pop song. If you ever need someone to scream sing Carly Rae Jepsen's E·MO·TION with, I'm your girl. No, I still have not gotten over the One Direction hiatus. Please continue to respect my privacy.
