The Big Pink

First came The Klaxons, then Friendly Fires, and now The Big Pink. Well actually, according to other more knowledgeable people, first came Spiritualized, My Bloody Valentine, Jesus & Mary Chain and Happy Mondays, but I know bugger all about those bands.

They went unnoticed by me earlier in the year despite appearing on the BBC Sound of 2009 poll but it’s probably only now that they’re about to break through into popular consciousness. ‘Too Young To Love’ showcased their dreamy side, particularly on The Living Eye remix while ‘Stop The World’ was a big old fashioned indie song that’s made just that bit more special with fuzzy electronics swooshing all over the bass. Now ‘Dominos’ is the track to break them, preceding their brilliantly named debut album ‘A Brief History Of Love’. It’s packed full of feedback and distortion but also a brilliant pop hook. Plus hot female drummers always earn a couple more points. You can download the track for free (FREE!) at their official site.
