Big Dipper Shares Summery Break Up Song

One of our favorite beary singers, Big Dipper, has dropped a new video for his song “Why We Can’t” ft Rena. It’s a different kind of tone for him, one that he describes as intimate and low key. The release also teases his debut LP, ‘Late Bloomer’, which is out this Summer.  

Filmed in San Francisco and Brooklyn, “Why We Can’t” is an honest visual that showcases Big Dipper in a new light and features Rena on the hook and a verse.

When asked about the concept for the video, Big Dipper said: “I’d been toying with the idea of making a low budget video with a simple concept that really focused on the message and idea of the song.  I like the way the footage captures intimate moments with me and the camera but in public spaces; and I think it reinforces the idea of feeling alone even when there are other people around. The video is really open and honest and vulnerable… not hiding behind big fashion or art direction statements or gimmicks and tricks. The song is about coming clean with yourself, owning your truth, and I feel like the video expresses that.”

On writing “Why We Can’t”, Big Dipper says: “….it’s about that grey area in a relationship when the future is unclear.  After I initially wrote the song I kind of scrapped the whole idea because it felt too honest. I was scared of the change that was coming, but writing the song made it much easier to actualize my feelings.”
