ARTIST: BIG DEAL
ALBUM: SAY YES
LABEL: FATCAT RECORDS
Based in London, Big Deal are principally formed by Alice Costelloe and Kacey Underwood. The band have recently released their third album 'Say Yes', which follows up 2011's 'Lights Out' and 2013's 'June Gloom'. The new record is their first through FatCat Records and sees the band embracing a bigger, better, more wholesome sound.
The album was recorded over a 10 day period during the Summer last year and features 11 tracks which come in around the 48 minutes mark. The album lurches and sways from rock to pop, with a sense of genuine honesty felt throughout.
The band themselves have recently spoke about this new found openness and how it helped the album saying "We’ve always been pretty private about our relationship within the band, but feel more comfortable talking about it for this record, as it’s pivotal in the placement of our career.” they explain. “It’s about taking all kinds of heartbreak and defeat, and just looking at it dead in the eye and going for it". Repeated listens are a must on this one but be warned you'll get hooked!
