In 2009, The Big Pink released A Brief History of Love, an impressive and distinctly British debut LP that was informed heavily by shoegaze, as well as the best of the 90s UK indie and electronic scenes. By the sounds of their new single, the markedly catchy “Stay Gold”, the ingredients for their tunes remain largely the same. Not that it bothers me any— this delivers with at least as much gusto as anything off the first record, save perhaps the so-good-it’s-gonna-be-hard-to-top single “Dominos”.
Check out the original version of “Stay Gold” and the remix from Dipset’s resident King Midas araabMUZIK down below. Look for LP2, Future This, to drop in January 2012.
