TAKEN FROM EFFERVESCENT NEW EP ‘HUMAN TOUCH IS FOREVER’ – OUT 27TH APRIL
FIRST LONDON SHOW ANNOUNCED @ SEBRIGHT ARMS 4TH MAY
The soundtrack to making up for the many lost nights out during the past two years, ‘Something’ is another euphoric number from the Birmingham-based quartet that aches to be reverberated around sticky-floored venues with a mate on either arm singing along.
Speaking about the track vocalist George Johnson says, “I wrote ‘Something’ the day before we first met up 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 super obvious acid house influence). I wrote it in about 30 minutes. It’s really just a super simple pop song and that’s why I love it.”
Bassist Luke Morris adds, “‘Something’ lyrically tells the story of finding someone at a rave/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.”
The accompanying music video visualises the essence of ‘Something’ perfectly, with multi-coloured hues glowing in sync with the nightclub love affair playing out before your eyes. In their own words Big Image say, “The music video is about a couple who have a psychedelic experience – it was shot and directed by our longtime collaborator Henry Bettany. We hadn’t worked with him in a while so we were all buzzing to get back shooting with him.”
‘Something’ is also taken from their new EP ‘Human Touch Is Forever’ due for release on 27th April 2022. Featuring previous singles ‘Parallel Love Affair‘ and the Radio X Xposure 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 four-piece will be showcasing the new EP at their headline London show on Wednesday 4th May at Sebright Arms.
The announcement follows a very successful 2021 for Big Image. Last year they played the This Feeling stage at Isle of Wight Festival and shortly after, a raucous, intimate hometown show at the Sunflower Lounge in Birmingham to celebrate their debut single’s release. They also appeared on Scruff Of The Neck TV featuring a live session and interview with Radio X’s Jack Wood, and were chosen to appear in Scott’s Menswear‘s nationwide Autumn/Winter campaign alongside Sam Fender and Bru-C. Now with the countdown on to their debut EP, Big Image keep getting bigger, and bigger.
