Dearly loved Australian singer songwriter, Bob Evans has released his new single Born Yesterday, a gorgeous, nostalgia-soaked rambler of a track.
Born Yesterday is also accompanied by a beautiful, glowing video clip which serves as an ode to touring during a year where it was impossible. Bob Evans, the ARIA-winning alter ego of Jebediah frontman Kevin Mitchell, has graced the Australian music scene for more than two decades and has written some of the country’s most beloved songs and Born Yesterday will not disappoint his loyal audience.
Born Yesterday is perfect for that classic Aussie drive to the beach – it feels like summer holidays. Glistening guitars spread luxuriously as Mitchell’s idiosyncratic vocal hits those brilliant notes in the hook-laden chorus – then the track hits unprecedented highs with a killer sax solo right in the middle of the song.
The clip for Born Yesterday captures this nostalgia flawlessly. Shot as though on a vintage super 8 camera, the viewer follows the Bob Evans touring party through gigs, travel, and recording, as the handwritten lyrics fade in and out as the melodies pass.
Born Yesterday is out now via Dew Process.
