Today, alt-pop duo Mob Rich (formerly Moby Rich) share a new single entitled “Everything and Nothing”.
On yet another alternative bop from the band, the track illuminates the nuances of the pair’s signature style. Its lyrics describe the price of vulnerability in relationships, telling a story about the mixture of trepidation, elation, excitement, and dread that comes with new beginnings. “You make me feel like everything and nothing,” describing the fear of the unknown and the excitement of what could be.
On this feeling the band described: “‘Everything and Nothing’ makes us think about every first date we’ve ever had. In that moment the possibilities are endless. You could be sitting across the table from someone you will spend forever with, or they might just be here for drinks and maybe a one-night stand.
Sometimes you can be so infatuated by a person that you start to imagine every possible scenario with them play out in your mind, and in that fleeting moment you feel all the emotions at once? A visceral landslide. It’s almost too much to take in. Nevertheless, we continue with 21 questions and stare at each other from across the table, feeling both everything and nothing.
And when it does end up lasting longer than one night a whole new definition of everything and nothing starts. It becomes about the price we pay for being completely vulnerable with someone and all our ups and downs in relationships. The ability to feel on top of the world and also sometimes, unfortunately, the complete opposite.”
The accompanying music video further describes this feeling via emotionally palpable choreography as the video’s star dances throughout downtown Atlanta. One can’t help but feel happier watching the contagious joy and emotions portrayed by the routine.
