The Big Pink, i.e. the English duo of
Milo Cordell and Robbie Furze, were one of the British "next big things" of 2009
thanks to the idea of blending
Loop-style shoegazing and
A Brief History Of Love (4AD, 2009) collects the singles
Too Young to Love
(distorted guitars, tribal drums, hypnotic psalm),
Velvet (electronic beat a` la Men Without Hats'
circular guitar riff and hymn-like vocal melody)
and Dominos, and adds
melodic danceable ditties such as Crystal Visions.
The album is bogged down by some
dejavu melodies and atmospheres borrowed from the 1980s (best At War With The Sun) and by some truly inane songs.
Tapes (!K7, 2010) is a mix tape.
Future This (2012) sounded like a collection of leftovers from the
first album appended to the new catchy single, Stay Gold. The worst
ethos of the Brit-pop industry.
