THE BIG PINK are Londoners Robbie Furze and Milo Cordell, two lifelong friends whose home studio experiments have bore some of the most inspiring British music of 2008. Entirely characteristic of The Big Pink’s unique furrow, the hope-filled darkness of their music points to both the digital hardcore and art-rock undergrounds, while Robbie’s trademark soaring vocal melodies and densely encompassing reverberation complete their entrancing formula. The at times stately drone and overdriven trebly crescendo nods to such sonic reference points as the shoe-gaze of my bloody valentine and brooding minimalism of Earth, but the track’s chiming chorus and tender melodic nuance allow it a fragile beauty of its very own.
