OBB Releases Music Video For “Close By” Prior To The Start Of Their Nationwide Summer Tour

These brothers have been on-form lately, OBB have seriously become a trio to keep your eyes on as they go from strength to strength with every new release. Their latest single release, “Close By”, was officially released on 3 May 2019, following up the awesome track “7 Billion“. Now, we have a joyous music video for the heart-feels track.

For those of you who are wondering who OBB are; well, they are a boy band trio consisting of the Oswald brothers, Zach, Jacob, and Nich. They are currently building up their careers, having reached millions of people just last year with the release of “Sweater” and “Mona Lisa”, as well as their debut EP, titled Is This A Thing. The songs, of which, have been featured on Radio Disney, a Google Chromebook commercial, and a Dude Perfect YouTube video. We even managed to interview the boys about their EP, last year. They’re gaining fans with every release of new music, and this “7 Billion” track shows off their artistry brilliantly, which we also managed to interview them about.

The song has been written by Clare Reynolds, Dave Audé, Jacob Oswald, Jason Robinson, Nicholas Oswald, and Zachary Oswald, whilst it was produced by Dave Audé. It’s an addicting track that truly shows off their feelings of missing their partners when they go out on tour. It’s highly relatable to people in a similar situation or for people who are in long-distance relationships. It’s more of a ballad in comparison to the loved-up pop track, “7 Billion” and yet both of them relate to each other perfectly, showcasing the direction of their new project, could we have a love album on its way?

As for the new music video, which was released a couple of days ago, it has a retro feel to it. They purposely added in grainy effects to bring nostalgia and home movie feelings, suggesting the band are looking back on these wonderful memories. Throughout the visual, we see scenes of each member of OBB spending time with their partners at events, dates, and entertainment venues. The clip spreads joy and happiness to what could be considered a teary emotional track.
