The Awkward – Back

In 2019, Dutch band Some Day announced their split, citing ‘creative differences’ as the main reason. Funny then, that three members (Jeroen Mooi, Brian Groot and Sen Caris) are now together in a new project: The Awkward. A fitting name, in that respect. Rashid Beltifa completes the quartet. In true DIY fashion, they do everything themselves, including their video clips.

As soon as Summer 2019, the four started writing and recording songs in their home studio. Scrapping their touring plans freed up their agendas and as a result, The Awkward were able to finish their debut album instead. Back is the third single to be released ahead of it. A smart mix of synth-pop and indie-pop, including random sounds they taped between recording sessions. The ‘80s meet the ‘90s.

The aerobics clip has little to do with the lyrics, but fits the energy of the song perfectly. Bring on that album!
