Searing and soulful, transcendental and life affirming, The Big Pink have recently emerged as one of the most exciting bands to come out of the UK. Following the release of their excellent debut record A Brief History of Love, Robbie Furze and Milo Cordell embark on their inaugural Australian tour. In March 2010, they are set to appear at Golden Plains Festival in Victoria, along with headline dates around the country. All show details below.
2009 started with a bang, with the ink just drying on a worldwide deal with 4AD – an apt move as their otherworldly qualities provide a direct sonic connection to some of the label’s most celebrated acts like Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance and TV On The Radio.
They headed to the Electric Lady Studios in New York to record and self-produce what was to become their epic debut album, A Brief History of Love. The final results are eleven stunning tracks, including the intoxicating singles Velvet, Too Young To Love and Dominos , that chart the trials of the heart, set within a sound-world that combines melody and beautiful noise in equal measure.
The Big Pink have created a body of work so strong, it cements their position as one of the finest and most important bands to emerge in years, set to continue their upward trajectory well into the future. As for now, we are preparing our ears for our very own experience of that massive sound, live in Australia for March 2010.
