New York reggae-pop band, The Big Takeover, have premiered the new video for their latest single, “Shy,” via Audiofemme. Fronted by the charismatic Jamaican-born singer/songwriter Nee Nee Rushie, The Big Takeover blend Jamaican pop traditions with the spirit of Motown and uptown sophistication of the 21st-century retro soul and R&B revival scene. “Shy” is the first single from the band's upcoming fifth album, Spilling Water, and was produced by David Baron (Meghan Trainor, The Lumineers, and Jade Bird). The new video finds the New York band starring as guests on a fictional 70s late-night show to perform their upbeat single. “The song has a retro pop vibe that pairs perfectly with the retro late-night show theme,” Rushie told Audiofemme, adding, “We knew we wanted to do a performance video, but the idea for a retro late-night show came from the director [Dino Davaros].”
