Mobley Reworks Single “Nobody’s Favourite” With Foster The People

Austin musician/multimedia artist Mobley is excited to share Foster the People’s rework of “Nobody’s Favourite,” the first single off Mobley’s forthcoming EP.  His friends in the LA-based band were more than happy to offer their interpretation of a song described by Mobley as “the internal monologue of a powerful scumbag.”

Isom Innis of Foster The People described the genesis of the new version: “I’ve been really inspired by Larry Levan at the moment. With Mobley’s track I was chasing a more archaic sequence based approach using the Arp 2600, Roland 707 drums and trying to make the baseline something that could have bumped at the Paradise Garage.” Mobley was delighted with the result. “I’ve been a fan of Foster since the first time I heard them and have always looked forward to their new releases. When I found out they were interested in reworking ‘Nobody’s Favourite’ I was thrilled, to say the least. I originally conceived of the song as kind of a dancepunk number. They really leaned into the dance aspect and got intricate with the rhythmic interplay.  I love it and I can’t wait for people to hear it.”
