Big Image

Big Image combine the reverb-drenched piano of house, the propulsive breakbeats of drum and bass and the bubbling buoyancy of baggy to create a cocktail sound that is entirely theirs.

With smart, world-weary lyricism, and arms-around-shoulders sentiment, the Midlands four piece – composed of George, Luke Connor and Seb – make euphoric and transformative pop for the masses. Previously under the name Ivory Wave, they landed support slots with bands such as The Sherlocks, DMA’s and The Twang, building a considerable live following.

That is until the C-word hit and the group was presented with a lockdown-induced opportunity. “We looked around at things and thought: ‘We’ve got a bit of an opportunity here. Why don’t we start a fresh?”.

With a change of name to reflect the band’s refreshed confidence, the first taste listeners will be treated to is Parallel Love Affair: a Chemical Brothers-indebted lead single that pulses to a hook-laden outro.
