New York, NY (Top40 Charts) In celebration of their new project Our First Second EP out now, alternative pop duo Moby Rich reveal the video for their new song "Oil Spill" today. Directed by Tim Oakley, the duo talks about the inspiration behind it, saying, "We wanted the video for 'Oil Spill' to be an Anchorman meets Tim and Eric vibe. We went for an idea that was crazy, quirky and satirical contrasting the dark vibe and subject matter of the song. We shot it with our buddy Tim Oakley. He did an amazing job of taking all the little things we did that day and piecing it together to make a really entertaining video."

Our First Second EP follows their recent release "Sabotage," as well as their 2018 breakout track "Yoko Ono," which has almost 2 million Spotify streams to date and received praise from Annie Mac at BBC Radio 1, triple j, Noisey, The Line Of Best Fit and more. After joining BROODS on the Australian leg of their tour last month, the duo recently performed their first-ever headlining New York and Los Angeles shows.

LA two-piece Moby Rich turn melancholy song craft into bold, pop hooks and visuals. The pair - Maxwell Joseph and Connor Pledger — relocated to LA in 2015 from Indianapolis and Atlanta respectively in search of, well, anything. In a moment of synergy, Connor began attending open mic nights around the town in which Maxwell was living. The pair serendipitously met, began writing together, and realized an identifiable sound between the two them. Writing the majority of their tracks on acoustic guitar, they sing every song in unison, a sort of whole-is-greater-than-the-sum-of-parts attitude, which speaks volumes of their close, almost twin-like, friendship. The first insight into Moby Rich's unique sound comes in the shape of their 2018 breakout hit, "Yoko Ono," a melancholy pop banger that combines the euphoria of early MGMT with the laidback beat making of N.E.R.D, which was featured on their debut, Our First EP. Their new single, "Sabotage," is a hands-aloft ode to fucking up royally; a cathartic anthem for a generation faced with obstacles. "Sabotage" sets the stage for Moby Rich's second project Our First Second EP out now.
