The Moms are spreading their soup-loving, feel good mantra with a brand new video for their track “Soup Song.” This New Jersey pop punk outfit — not actually a group of child-bearers (nor are they even women) — recently released their first full length record, Doing Asbestos We Can, with Bar/None Records.
Frontman Joey Nester explained, “‘Soup Song’ is all about putting in perspective what we let bring us down. In the grand scheme of things (relative to the universe), what may give us grief is typically quite trivial.” He continued, “The song is about recognizing the scale of our personal issues and also, about how there are simple things we can do to make things a little better for ourselves (i.e. Eat soup).”
The Moms adventured through Asbury Park, NJ for the “Soup Song” visuals, handing out cups of soup from a van painted with their new slogan, “Eat soup, feel good.” Grungy-DIY sounds provided by the band pair nicely with the candid shots of the video, and really drive their message home.
Nester also added that the soup theme wasn’t such an out-of-the-box choice, as he mentioned, “It’s also worth noting that we have a chalkboard in our rehearsal space that we inherited from a defunct deli next door which brandishes the slogan “eat soup, feel good” across the top. The phrase worked with the melody and the song spring-boarded (chalk-boarded?) from there.”
