The Big Pink - Stay Gold

So the Big Pink still exist and they’re still making fire-bellied anthems stewed in noise and backed up with thumping great drum beats. There’s a nice minor key change in the pre-chorus and the chorus itself is as bludgeoningly hook-heavy as one could hope, but in all honestly it’s still very much the same as what they were covering on their debut. Hopefully the rest of the new record (named Future This) will see a touch more progression. It’s by no stretch a bad track, it just doesn’t feel worthy of anybody’s attention. It’s easy to imagine that some producer will get their hands on it and transform it into the kind of banger it so desperately wants to be, but in the meantime we’ll just have to make do with this functionary slice of laddy indie-dance.
