With the release of their 2019 single ‘Falling In’, Sydney indie rock outfit Big White announce their third body of work ‘Heaven’s Unlikely’, a five-track EP packed with punchy pop hooks and sharp lyrics. ‘Falling In’ is the first taste of new music from the band since the release of their sophomore LP, ‘Street Talk’ in 2018.
Big White first met and started making music together when they moved into an Art Deco share house in the inner west of Sydney in 2013. The band signed to Burger Records in 2015 after being scouted at a pub in Bondi, and in 2016 released their debut album, ‘Teenage Dreams’, followed by 2018’s ‘Street Talk. Both albums were toured extensively across Europe and the States. Both releases saw the band receive high rotation across Australian community radio (early praise from Matt Wilkinson’s Beats 1 London show, while becoming the 6th most played artist on Fbi Radio in 2018)
Big White return in 2019 to announce the release (after two full albums) of their debut EP ‘Heaven’s Unlikely’. The beds of ‘Heaven’s Unlikely’ were written and recorded on the South Coast of Australia the same summer ‘Street Talk’ was released but it wasn’t til the band broke down on a long stretch of Victorian bushland in 45 degree Australian summer heat, that they found a need to return to the studio to finish off ‘Heaven’s Unlikely’.
‘Heaven’s Unlikely’ is a continuation of their sophomore album ‘Street Talk’. The same tight, punchy pop hooks and incisive lyrics that they displayed are ever more present. ‘Heaven’s Unlikely’ is an energetic and sharp display of indie pop rock evoking the best of post-punk, new wave and Australian rock with a distinctly modern voice.
