The Big Pink - 'Give It Up'

Biography

Having toyed with the idea of “making noise” together for a few years, it turned out that when close friends Milo Cordell and Robbie Furze finally did so, they had the makings of something special. Their infectious debut single, ‘Too Young To Love’ (2008), created an early hype that heralded the beginning of a whirlwind period. With two more limited singles being ...

Editorial Reviews

Running in at ten tracks in 45 minutes, Future This commands your attention throughout. Opening with its first single, "Stay Gold," a track written about doing what makes you happy, so immediate you could be forgiven for thinking they've not been away. From there, the album is paced perfectly, with future live anthems ("Rubbernecking," "1313," "Jump Music"), counterbalanced with a set of songs that show a more subtle side ("Hit The Ground (Superman)," "Give It Up" and title track "Future This").

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars... Early contender for "album of the year" January 17, 2012
Format:Audio CD
The Big Pink is the UK-based electro-rocker duo consisting of Robbie Furze and Milo Cordell which gained some exposure as a result of their "Dominos" single from their 2009 debut album "A Brief History of Love", but in a sense that single's success was not indicative of the album's sound as a whole (for me anyway). Nevertheless, the Big Pink ran with it, and hasn't looked back. Now a good 2 years later we get their highly anticipated sophomore album.

"Future This" (10 tracks; 45 min.) starts off very impressively with a couple of can't-miss infectuous sing-alongs in "Stay Gold" (1st UK single), to which my first reaction was: surely it is no coincidence that the Olympic Games this year take place in London?, and "Hit the Ground (Superman), which samples Laurie Anderson's "O Superman" supposedly (as in: Anderson is credited as co-writer). I love "O Superman" from 30 years ago, but honestly I don't hear much on this song reminding me of it, other than the opening vocoder-riff and the repeated "O Superman" words. No matter, "Hit the Ground" is just as arena-sized and ready as "Stay Gold". Good tracks follow one another, so let's just stick to the major highlights: "1313" is my favorite track on the album, another huge song that screams "Stadium!". "Jump Music" is an all-out rocker. "Lose Your Mind" reminds me of European (specifically: French) disco-rock of 30 years ago. But truth be told, there are really no weak tracks on here.

In all, this is quite the album. In I had to compare it to anything, I'd say Passion Pitt's "Manners" of a few years ago. Yet again, there is a release early in the year that throws down the gauntlet for "album of the year" consideration (in 2011 it was Cut Copy's "Zonoscope" and in 2010 it was Charlotte Gainsbourg's "IRM").

4.0 out of 5 stars Nothing like the 1st album, so........ January 19, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
I'm finding it hard to review this album and, obviously, this band. The first album sounds nothing like this one, and therefore I don't know what to make of the band at all. The first one was very a shoegaze-y mid-rock Brit-pop thing, and this new one is more the amalgamation of so many things from Electro to 80's pop to synth-rock to low-fidelity alternative that I'm at a loss. This album is very good, don't get me wrong; the experimentation of mixing genres in this very creative way really works here, but it almost makes them sound like 2 separate bands from one album to the next. Weird, is all about I can say, but it does sound good!

4.0 out of 5 stars Staying Gold January 25, 2012
Format:Audio CD
London-based musicians Milo Cordell and Robbie Furze have turned a home studio project into an international sensation seemingly overnight thanks to an ad campaign for Microsoft's Xbox 360 that featured The Big Pink's explosive first single "Dominos." Combined with a memorable live show and a critically acclaimed debut album, 2009's "A Brief History of Love," their popularity has steadily grown ever since.

Although The Big Pink released a mix CD entitled "Tapes" in 2010, "Future This" is the duo's second full album of original material. Like their debut, "Future This" is produced by Paul Epworth who has recently worked with the likes of Adele and Florence & the Machine among many other reputable artists.

His contribution to the record is once again unmistakable, but the album is clearly designed to build off of the band's past successes.

On "A Brief History of Love," "Dominos" was a clear stand-out single. Tracks like "Velvet" and "Too Young To Love" were still extremely enjoyable, but nothing compared to the soaring vocals of the chorus repeated on "Dominos." "Future This" utilizes the massive success of "Dominos" by applying aspects of its memorable formula throughout the album's 10 tracks.

"Future This" opens with "Stay Gold," a track that seems to pull equally from "Dominos" and MGMT's breakout single "Time to Pretend."

This time, the soaring vocals from the chorus of "Dominos" are present for the entire song and it works like a charm. "Stay Gold" is an almost guaranteed hit single around the world.

"Stay Gold" is followed by "Hit the Ground (Superman)" which uses an almost identical vocal, complete with a memorable sing-along chorus.
