The Big Pink Are Back With Darkly Sparkling ‘Beautiful Criminal’

It's off of the U.K. outfit's new EP, 'Hightimes,' due March 4

Following the departure of band member Milo Cordell in 2014, London shoegaze futurists the Big Pink are back with a new EP of studio-recorded synth epics. No word yet on the full-length follow-up to 2011’s enormous Future This though the band is in Los Angeles working on new material but the four-track Empire Underground (due March 4 via B3SCI Records) will keep fans tided over until then.

On “Beautiful Criminal,” a digital arpeggio pinwheels beneath the intimate harmonies of lead vocalist/guitarist Robbie Furze and singer/keyboardist Mary Charteris, who channel upcoming tour mates the Kills in their edgy flair for the dramatic.
