The second full-length from Robbie Furze and Milo Cordell - aka The Big Pink - picks up where their 2009 debut A Brief History of Love left off. Churning out more of the catchy, cool electro-rock vibe full of off-kilter noises, memorable synth works, pop vocals and hip-hop-esque rhythms, the album appeals to the masses without letting go of the edgy aesthetic that the Londoners are usually associated with. Check out the lead single "Stay Gold," which was inspired by a late-60s Playboy article by Stanley Kubrick as well as Robert Frost's Pulitzer Prize winning poem, "Nothing Gold Can Stay." Other picks include "Jump Music," "Hit The Ground," "1313," and "Rubber necking."
