thebigpinkHad 90’s era the Chemical Brothers morphed into some shoegazers, they might’ve sounded like rock duo Robbie Furze and Milo Cordell, who comprise the London based band the Big Pink. Their debut record, A Brief History Of Love, is an epic sounding mix of shoegaze, electronica and a keen ear for a pop hook, reminiscent at times of the Church or the Dandy Warhols circa Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia, as well as their peers the Horrors. It’s an ambitious record that’s also great fun to listen to, as the band makes the most of their broad range of influences, changing things up enough from song to song to keep the record compelling from first note to last. Standout cuts: “Crystal Visions,” “Dominos,” “Velvet” and “A Brief History Of Love.”
