The Big Pink duo of Robbie Furze & Milo Cordell played Lee’s Palace Sunday night in support of their debut album ‘A Brief History of Love’. Having only one album under their belt it was expected that the show would be a short one but I didn’t think that I’d leave wanting more.
The duo with touring bassist Leopold Ross & drummer Akiko Matsuura came out to strobe lights and dry ice smoke that lasted the entire 45 minute set. At times during their set drummer Akiko Matsuura was completely hidden by the insane amount of dry ice smoke which was too much at times.
The Big Pink have a unique sound to them as their album isn’t a heavy/loud album whereas live they pound the beats & guitar riffs as if they were categorized as a hard rock group. This difference is what made me appreciate them even more as they can make the songs on the album sound even better live.
Some of the songs they played included Velvet, Crystal Visions & Too Young To Love but none gather more of a reaction than their hit single Dominos. They closed the show with Dominos with everyone singing along to the catchy chorus of ‘These Girls Fall Like Dominos‘. A lot of the crowd stuck around for a good couple of minutes wanting to see an encore but the band didn’t come back out and even if they did I couldn’t think of what they’d play besides the tracks they missed from their album. All in all it was a great show (a little to short but oh well) and they are definitely a band to check out in the future when they come back.Tweet
