Big Deal #3 - Always Boys


Big Deal waste no time following up last years June Bloom with a new EP Sakura, due July 15th via Mute. For now we've been treated to it's lead track "Always Boys", a song which reaffirms the band as one of our most under-rated acts, rising from a mellow, spacey introduction to big, soaring highs with a real feel of summery pop and addictive sing-along verses.

The guitars fly in from different angels, driving hard and laying the scuzz on thick ever-propelled by a runaway percussive beat. Alice takes on sole vocal duties on the track, her voice smooth and dreamy and the result sounds like it should be the soundtrack to your summer, a rich and expansive noise that keeps on giving.
