Following the recent live session video of the new BIG IMAGE single, SOMETHING, recorded at Villa Park – the home of Premier League club Aston Villa – the band have now revealed the remix of the track by Aberdeen duo testpress, an outfit already making waves at BBC Radio 1 Dance and BBC Introducing, whose reputation will rise even further with this reworking.
SOMETHING is the soundtrack to making up for many lost nights out during the past two years and is another single from the Birmingham-based quartet that aches to be reverberated around sticky-floored venues with a mate on either arm singing along. The testpress remix rises the temperature even higher
Speaking about the track, vocalist George Johnson says, “I wrote Something the day before we first met up again as a band after lockdown. I was really missing going out, so the song is about all the best nights out we’ve had rolled into one, hence the obvious acid house influence. I wrote it in about 30 minutes. It’s a simple pop song and that’s why I love it”
Bassist Luke Morris adds, “Lyrically, Something tells the story of finding someone at a rave or club and spending the night with them. When George played me the demo, I knew it was a single. It’s the most acid house tune we’ve done; a proper party anthem desperate to be heard by the masses”.
SOMETHING is taken from the band’s new EP, HUMAN TOUCH IS FOREVER, due for release on 27 April. Featuring previous singles Parallel Love Affair and the Radio X playlisted Crazier as well as another new track – Sleeping Alone – it’s a big milestone in the band’s career to date. Previously working under the name Ivory Wave, this will be the quartet’s first body of work as BIG IMAGE.
The announcement follows a successful 2021 for BIG IMAGE which saw them play the This Feeling stage at the Isle of Wight Festival and a raucous, intimate hometown show at Birmingham Sunflower Lounge to celebrate their debut single. They also appeared on Scruff of The Neck TV, featuring a live session and interview with Jack Wood from Radio X, and were chosen to appear in the Scotts Menswear nationwide autumn / winter campaign alongside Sam Fender and Bru-C. Now, with the addition of live dates and the countdown on to their debut EP, BIG IMAGE keeps getting bigger and bigger.
