Rock With Big Deal

1461088224BigDeal0216_Gullick9236It’s very likely that I’m running a day or two behind on posting this new Big Deal song, but alas, I do not care because I’ve been talking about this band way too long to not post their new music now. If you don’t spend all day on the internet, maybe you haven’t heard this rocking new song called “Avalanche”. One can of course hear the more fleshed out and full rock n roll sound one might expect when expanding your band from a duo to a quartet. Count me in as a continuing fan of this band and their no nonsense take on indie rock.

Great New Track From Big Deal

jpegBig Deal came onto our radar last year with a ton of solid tracks that we shared with you as soon as we had them.  Today news is coming that the band have even more new music this year and plan on releasing a new EP this summer.  This great new track “Always Boys” is yet another example of the power created by this band.  A slow build up leads to an intense, loud, power driven pop tune.  We hope that you enjoy this one as much as we do.

New EP, Sakura, is coming on July 15th.

Dreamy Tune from Big Deal

bigdealIt’s often hard for bands to grab a foothold in the United States, but after spending some time with the most recent Big Deal record, I think it’s only fair that I offer up their new single to you guys.  June Gloom was released earlier this summer on Mute; it offers this clever blend of traditional male/female indie rock with a coat of that new shoegaze tradition.  It’s both loud and restrained at once, providing listeners a chance to smile while they’re battered with walls of noise.  Take a chance on these guys; you won’t be let down.

More New Music From Big Deal

jpegBig Deal is a band that I took a liking to after we shared their new song “Teradoctol” with you guys a few months ago.  Today we get another taste of new material with latest single “Dream Machine”.  I hear sounds similar to bands like Races mixed with more electronic based groups like Purity Ring.  Either way, this band is growing on me with each and every spin.

New album June Gloom will be released on June 4th via Mute Reocrds.

Noisy Number from Big Deal

jpegIt seems like Big Deal have decided to up the ante on their blend of electronic bedroom pop, choosing this time to add a full line-up that would help flesh out their sound.  Almost from the moment their new single starts, you can feel the buzzsaw guitars and the pounding rhythmic drumming in your ears, pausing ever so briefly to toss a softer moment in between.  It’s a heavy-handed track, but one that’s exciting in its very approach, offering a new look at the London group.  They’ll be releasing their newest album, June Gloom, on June 4th.  Be sure to hold out for the soaring bit of vocal at the end just before the group breaks into a nice little group chant.
