The Big Pink// The Heirs March 4th at Marble Bar
British electronic rock band The Big Pink are making a welcomed return with their brand new single "Hightimes". The single is a soaring maelstrom of powerful industrial beats and distorted chords, whirling in a heady swathe of synthesizers and stadium psychedelia, and serves as the perfect taster of their forthcoming 'Empire Underground' EP and what's to come in 2016 .
With two critically acclaimed albums under their belt "A Brief History of Love" and "Future This" both reaching Top 10 status in the Billboard Heatseekers and Tastemakers Album Charts The Big Pink will release the 'Empire Underground EP' in early 2016 and will follow with their third full-length later in the year, alongside a North American tour.
Their forthcoming release features contributors Andrew Wyatt, Beth Ditto, Dave Mccraken (producer of Ian brown) and was mixed by the legendary Alan Moulder.
The Heirs can trace their origin back to a dream. The Los Angeles based band, consisting of brother and sister Brandon and Savannah Hudson share an ethereal vision for their band and future. "It all came from a mutual dream," Brandon explains. "In this vision, I could see our modern world becoming aristocratic. The youth were considered heirs to the world, inheriting everything the adults left behind." That vision defines their music including the upcoming EP which was produced by Justin Stanley (Beck, The Vines, Sheryl Crow) and Bram Inscore (Beck, Icona Pop), with Brandon sharing in various producing roles. Co-written by both Brandon and Savannah, the 2015 expected EP proclaims the group's formal electronics, sweeping keys, and a handclap-driven beat on the first single "Alright Goodnight" set to release July 31st. "It's about people stepping out and asserting themselves," shares Savannah. "You can always speak your feelings. Everybody deserves to have a say. There are so many negative things in the world." The hook heavy single portrays The Heirs complex writing. Once stuck in your head, the "Alright Goodnight" lyrics can be reflected a bit more serious than the tone of the song. "We wanted to make something different, something groovy, but also something that could speak for itself and say more than the usual pop songs of today."
