Everyone will remember the sharp and sudden explosion of The Big Pink onto the musical landscape, and even the charts, back in 2009. With their blend of 80s inspired, synth-tinged noise pop, they became one of the most hyped acts on record label 4AD (home of the Pixies, TV On The Radio and about 200 other amazing artists). Well, they’re taking us by the hand and leading us back into their ethereal world with the first single taken from their new album, Future This, due for release in early 2012. Despite the fact that the video for the lead single looks like they were given £10 and a comcorder, it is 3mis of uplifting, anthemic, beat driven pop majesty. It’s called Stay Gold. Thanks, guys. I intend to.
