LAIKIPIA released the music video for “Big Fish” this past week. The clip became a powerful force in the music industry. With its dynamic build up, the music video reflects the intensity of the music as well as the lyrics.
“You’ve left your guard down, But how could you have known, That I’m the big fish round here, You’re a small fish. I could make you disappear- You should know this”
With these words written both hauntingly and dreamily, the meaning of the song truly begins to shine through. Big Fish is about the balance of power, control and confrontation. And as the song continues to be layered, the force changes the entire vibe of the song. Paired with an electronic atmosphere, this song is bound to get sampled and being used at electronic festivals for sure.
“Smaller minds make easy prey, When there’s nothing left but fear… You’ve sung your heart out, You’ve given yourself away”
This song makes a great statement. It portrays a scene of the moment where, after a crushing defeat, a man finally stands up to his oppressor. He shows his resistance while being the “big fish” and it’s a dark and intense song with a great overall vibe and presence.
