Austin, Texas grunge rockers The Blind Pets have joined forces with Substream to share a brand new video for “Big Kids,” a steady builder filled with gloom, grit, and plenty of influence from ’90s grunge innovators in the ilk of Nirvana and Silverchair. The single is taken from the band’s recent full-length release, Sharon Is Karen.

The accompanying music video for “Big Kids” features vocalist/guitarist Joshua Logan in the leading role as a businessman who would much rather drown in a swimming pool than face another day of work at a presumably exhausting and trying job. This narrative shares screentime with clips of the band performing the song in a room as projected lights and images scatter about. You can view the visuals below.

Speaking about the track, Logan had this to say:

“This is a song about how harsh the music business is. It’s basically explaining the ‘sink or swim’ mindset and how sharks are always pulling at you, trying to take what little piece you might have.”

The Blind Pets’ newest LP, Sharon Is Karen, can be purchased on vinyl here. Dave Grohl is into it and you should be, too.
