The Big Pink

British electronic rock band The Big Pink are making a welcomed return with their brand new single “Hightimes”. The single is a soaring maelstrom of powerful industrial beats and distorted chords, whirling in a heady swathe of synthesizers and stadium psychedelia, and serves as the perfect taster of their forthcoming 'Empire Underground' EP and what’s to come in 2016 .

With two critically acclaimed albums under their belt “A Brief History of Love” and “Future This” – both reaching Top 10 status in the Billboard Heatseekers and Tastemakers Album Charts – The Big Pink will release the 'Empire Underground EP' in early 2016 and will follow with their third full-length later in the year, alongside a North American tour.

Their forthcoming release features contributors Andrew Wyatt, Beth Ditto, Dave Mccraken (producer of Ian brown) and was mixed by the legendary Alan Moulder.

MARC BAKER brings attitude to pop and romance to punk. He throws roses into the crowd. He swings the mic around his neck while donning a three-piece suit. This is what’s to expect when the Melbourne born and bred singer takes the stage.

The music, too, is reflective of all these things compounded with the frenetic energy and indelible melodies prevalent on the records he grew up listening to, which continue to serve as inspiration. Filtered through his and producer Ben Plant’s (MIAMI HORROR) discerning ears—the songs recorded during their sessions yield a contemporary spin on that beloved, vintage sound.

The first single is entitled “No Place I’d Rather Be.” Its refrain illustrates the emotion Baker so brazenly wears on his sleeve: “There is not place I’d rather be than next to you, holding hands, watching the world fall to pieces,” he sings.

But it’s the yearning expressed—that desire and desperation to connect—which is most revelatory about Baker and the timeliness of his arrival. Sure, while that sentiment of longing is no stranger to song—it’s perhaps even more relevant today, where connectivity, though ostensibly at our fingertips, has never been so far away.

Look for more singles and collaborations to be released throughout the year. And if possible, do find him in a dark venue and let the steam that builds surround you.
