A brief history of love

There’s something ultimate about London’s The Big Pink.

It’s as though they’ve compressed everything that’s great about post-war music into their sound. The Big Pink is as accessible as a pop group, with almost folkishly warm melodies, the spiritual quality of soul and gospel, the rhythmic propulsion of rave, the white noise of punk, the glitchy textures of electronica, and the heavy drones of your favourite New York rock bands past and present.
