VIDEO NEWS: Oliver Tree & Little Big Release Video For Collaborative Single ‘The Internet’
Oliver Tree and Little Big have released a video for their new single The Internet, taken from their recent released collaborative EP Welcome To The Internet.
“We worked on this collaboration for 1 year, sending stuff back and forth online prepping before executing the concepts together in person,” explains Oliver Tree. “I did extensive research on Russian dance music, watched as many documentaries as I could find about the Post-Soviet scene and read multiple theses on the topic. I even moved there for 4 months and went to every underground club and warehouse party I could attend. For me the most important song is titled “The Internet”. We are artists collaborating through the internet and although we live on other sides of the world, we both deal with a lot of the same issues. As artists who exist primarily in the online space, I feel there are not many examples of powerful art pieces that express the user experience of living and making art online in the 21st century. I consider the material to be very potent and feel we are exploring a profound subject while presenting it as silly and tongue and cheek so that it can be mass consumed without coming off as pretentious.”
“While writing Welcome To The Internet It was important to us to create a hybrid of different styles instead of focusing on one specific style,” Little Big adds.
Welcome To The Internet is out now via Atlantic Records, available to stream or purchase HERE.
