Single released 03/04/2011
Big Deal is Kacey Underwood and Alice Costelloe, an American boy and British girl bringing together electric fuzz and acoustic sheen, ambitious songs riddled with ambivalent lyrics of adult compromise and teen angst. They both sing, they both write, and they both play live, creating a tender, razor sharp noise. In the summer of 2010, they got tired of plugging things in, wearing ear plugs and waiting around. They then decided to start a band together, and with that, commenced writing and recording in their bedrooms.
This single is but the first step in Big Deal's plan for the year, with the pair having recently signed to Mute, through which they will release a full-length album in the summer. "Talk", however, is a thrilling start, and a clear signal that Big Deal really will live up to their apt moniker as the year rolls on.
