The Big Pink

Future This


The Big Pink’s name is a tribute to The Band’s Music From Big Pink. They ‘re an electro-pop duo, Robbie Furze and Milo Cordell, and are from England. Future This is the band’s second album.

The lyrics are positive, especially the opening track “Stay Gold” and “Hit the Ground Running (Superman)” with its terrific Laurie Anderson sample from her song “O Superman.” The music is seamless, polished, and goes down easy. Maybe a little too smooth and easy, which is the album’s main flaw. The rough edges that made the band’s debut A Brief History of Love, so appealing are absent here. Which is a shame, because the song quality over all is as great as on the first. The lyrics are wonderful, and Robbie is a good singer. So call this album very good light entertainment if you need a pick me up. []
