AA Loves: Big Deal

As their Myspace page aptly states, “we don't know how to put this but we're kind of a big deal.” A bit of a bratty thing to say, but Big Deal has the musical talent to back up their claims.

This UK duo, comprised of Kacey Underwood and Alice Costelloe, are destined for big things. Their sound is straightforward – 2 people, 2 voices, 2 guitars, and nothing else.

Their duets are stark, yet emotionally rich and haunting as they seem quite personal. The sullen detached vocal duets are paradoxically both emotionless and poignant, not unlike the XX. It’s as if we are privy to a special moment in their lives and they graciously shared something intensely private with us.

NME describes their sound beautifully, “The music recreates the feelings of long, lustful summer afternoons in bed. It's intimate and beautiful.”

Their first single “Homework” will be released on November 8th. Be sure to keep an eye out for them as the next Indie darlings of 2011.
