MOB RICH RELEASES DEBUT ALBUM WHY NO WHY TODAY FEATURING NEW SINGLE FUNERAL, LISTEN HERE
Alt-pop duo Mob Rich unveils their highly-anticipated debut album Why No Why today available here.
The album features 14-tracks, including recently released singles, Everything and Nothing, Hell Yeah and Made To Fall, as well as fan-favorite songs, Yoko Ono, Loser and friends* feat. Bishop Briggs. See the full tracklist below.
On their newest single Funeral, grainy radio feedback gives way to a bright and glitchy beat, as the duo’s vocals bounce over a procession of beats and bass. Mob Rich launches into a kaleidoscopically colorful call-and-response before chanting the chorus, This is the funeral for my dark side. It’s the last time. Yeah it’s goodbye. I will burry you deep, 6 foot under my feet. Ultimately, the band waves goodbye to sadness, burying it six feet under.
Mob Rich says, Our debut album is a collection of conversations we’ve had with each other over the years we’ve been friends. Those conversations found a way of turning into songs and those songs became very dear to us. We have constantly been asking ourselves the ‘why’ questions our whole lives, and we can’t wait for our fans to be able to listen to this album and hopefully ask those questions themselves.
Mob Rich has amassed over 50 million-plus streams to date and received praise from Billboard, Funny Or Die, Noisey, Alt Press, Ones To Watch, and many more, with People recently proclaiming, Mob Rich are creating ‘new anthems for the outcast.’ Following their album release this spring, the band will return to live touring this fall—first up is Life Is Beautiful Music & Art Festival in Las Vegas this September with more festivals and dates to be announced soon.

ABOUT MOB RICH
The music of Mob Rich (formerly Moby Rich) is an invitation. As much as the alt-pop duo’s sound owes to the specific otherworldly chemistry shared by Los Angeles transplants Maxwell Joseph and Connor Pledger, the charming melancholy, adventurous soundscapes, and big hooks they conjure are built for everyone. Mob Rich makes intimate and bold music destined to build a broader community with kindred spirits. These are new anthems for the outcast. The band’s full-length debut, Why No Why, is a collection of conversations in musical form, draped in an effervescent atmosphere. Careening between wry observations and sharply optimistic affirmations, Mob Rich demonstrates a commitment to artistic authenticity on the record, on the stage, and screens big and small. Straightforward hooks, with flourishes of grand theatricality, collide with existential themes and joyful whimsy. As people and musicians, Connor and Maxwell examine humankind’s inherent need for belonging, the seemingly overwhelming obstacles of anxiety and depression, and feelings of ostracization and otherness. The confessional nature of Mob Rich’s songs, combined with darkly comedic self-awareness, is immersive and pure. Substream Magazine observed, there’s both a carefree attitude and some serious life discussions peppered in. Emotional honesty and a keen sense of humor are vital pieces of the Mob Rich puzzle. The duo draws favorable comparisons to Tame Impala and early MGMT. A rhythmic punch like TØP and a swagger akin to Oasis intermingle in Mob Rich. They count Grandson, Broods, and Bishop Briggs among their collaborators and comrades. Already a staple of tastemaker playlists and radio formats with buzzing singles Get High and Yoko Ono, Mob Rich joined the Republic Records roster via the seasoned A&R maverick behind Ariana Grande and The Weeknd. Big bass and bigger drums are almost always part of the soundscape, with rich diversity built over the top of it. It was inevitable that, given the bond forged by Maxwell and Connor, Mob Rich would explore duality. They’re optimistic that the comfort and confidence they’ve found in shared strengths and complementary differences will provoke and inspire. It’s a phenomenon they’ve already witnessed in their short career and hope to expand.
