109 – Big Deal

Filed under: B, England — assman41 @ 12:01 am

Hey, look. It’s a male-female indie-pop duo harmonizing together over sparse, dreamy guitars while singing about alienation and unrequited love.

How revolutionary!

OK, so Big Deal’s formula isn’t exactly innovative. But that doesn’t make their music any less captivating.

The London-based duo of Alice Costelloe, a Brit, and Kacey Underwood, an American expatriate, have drawn comparisons to Wye Oak, Beach House and The XX.

There is no filler among the 12 tracks on their recently released debut, Lights Out. With an acoustic guitar accompanied by a fuzzed-out electric axe, the duo puts forth some solid shoegazy pop that works well both as a main course or simply as background noise.

In addition to the above “Chair”, a few other tracks that stood out were “Swoon” and “Talk”.

While you relax to the sounds of Big Deal, be sure to check out their interesting backstory.
