Brit electro rockers The Big Pink today released the new track “Hightimes,” a soaring track that’s being called a “maelstrom of powerful industrial beats and distorted chords, whirling in a heady swathe of synthesizers and stadium psychedelia.” It’s been getting lots of love from Zane Lowe via his Beats1 show, Fader, Hype Machine, and Spotify.
The band, now based in Los Angeles and comprised of Mary Charteris (vocals/keyboards), Robbie Furze (vocals/guitar), Free Hallas (drums), and Jesse Russell (bass) is currently at work on new material and has just started a short residency at L.A. club The Echo (remaining appearances are Monday, November 23rd and 30th at 10:30 p.m.), in a line up that also includes a DJ set from Miike Snow‘s Andrew Wyatt (who, along with Beth Ditto, Dave McCracken, and the legendary Alan Moulder, is featured on the forthcoming release).
The band’s forthcoming 2016 EP Empire Underground follows its two critically acclaimed albums, A Brief History of Love and Future This, both which reached Top 10 status on the Billboard Heatseekers and Tastemakers Album Charts.
