The Big Pink Empire Underground EP (B3SCI)

Nu-gaze standard setter The Big Pink follows up its two smash albums with the Empire Underground EP. A carved out four-track punch of inventive synth lines, taut guitars, and equally on-edge vocals, the multiple layers of Empire Underground don’t have a superfluous note anywhere. Robbie Furze’s voice brings a swing to the scratchiness of “Decoy”; Mary Charteris is a great accompaniment, bringing even more equilibrium to the equation on their duet, “High-times.”
