All-female garage bands are pretty much the greatest things ever, which makes London newcomers the Big Moon one of the greatest things ever by default. The four-piece thrives at blending indie rock and grunge stylings in a way that screams Sonic Youth, but with traces of Ex Hex or Hinds. Such is the case for the Big Moon’s heartbreak-pop track “Nothing Without You” and its ridiculously fun accompanying video, directed by Louis Bhose. They break into some excellent synchronized choreography that’s sort of an interpretive dance to the song itself, equal parts adorable and absurd. Streamers fly and headbands are adorned, and though the judges give the girls an average score of “1,” we’ll give them a “10” for effort. Maybe the Michael Cera in Juno-esque socks could be reconsidered, though. Watch the endearing video below.
