Sydney trio Loose Change, who are signed to Hip Hop label Big Village, have collaborated with creative collective Paper Moose on the music video for their latest single,Yes Or No. The clip features Sydney underground performer Betty Grumble, and the track comes off Loose Change’s newly released album, Listening Party.
Director Jeremy Graham says,“I wanted to create a fun and engaging film clip that highlights amazing talent from Sydney’s underground performance art scene, and we thought this would be a great opportunity to collaborate.”
Betty Grumble is the alter-ego of performance artist Emma Maye, a physical impression of a child beauty queen gone wrong – overly sexualised with excessively bright make-up, accentuating already exaggerated facial expressions, and over the top coloured costumes.
Yes Or No takes Betty into a scene from a 1950s movie set similar to that of Pleasantville (1998). We see Betty Grumble as a disgruntled council worker, slaving away at the everyday grind. But captivated by the distant music played by Loose Change MCs Rapaport and Ellesquire, Betty commences a journey away from the shackles of the banal everyday.
