Big Hush Release 'Cough' Official Music Video

Out now from Big Hush is their newest, dreamy music video for their single, "Cough."

Fresh off the announcement of their forthcoming debut album, dream pop quartet Big Hush has shared the new video with listeners! Taking a deep dive in the darker realms of their bedroom rock sound, the D.C. band combines pop songwriting with the opulence of shoe-gaze in one technicolored soundscape.

Check it out below!

“‘Cough’ is about being caught in a rut for so long that you lose touch with yourself and grow complacent about the shape of your life,” Big Hush says of the track. “The song is a plea that you could make to a friend, or yourself, to fight the easy temptation of viewing one's identity as reducible, or static. We're not as hard-wired as we think; we can always try to be better.”
