Music from the Black Country
Premiering on BBC6 Music’s Steve Lamacq, Big Special share new single ‘THIS HERE AIN’T WATER’. It’s a cathartic lament with no subtle edges – howling vocals leading into guitars and synths, held up by drums beaten like they owe someone money.
“It’s basically an inward sermon, when you’re stuck in your head egging yourself on about how rough times feel. It’s about media and politics. It’s about self-medication. It’s about a lack of options. It’s about the thinning of the common understanding between the social classes of England, and feeling stuck, watching it all happen.”
Released via SO Recordings, the Black Country duo have previously shared ‘SHITHOUSE’ which saw support from the likes of DORK, UPSET, The Line Of Best Fit, Already Heard, BBC6 Music, and have played with DEADLETTER, BENEFITS, and are set for 2000 Trees, as well as performing with Soul Glo, and Creep Show.
