Acclaimed British indie outfit The Big Pink unveil their latest single today, entitled ‘Safe and Sound’.
The song is lifted from the group’s forthcoming third album, ‘The Love That’s Ours’, which also happens to be their first release since 2012’s ‘Future This’. Speaking on the track, frontman Robbie Furze says:
“Dancing with these vultures in my fugitive apartment”, “Angels with their wings clipped gunning for the love that’s ours”.
“These lines sum up the record perfectly. I moved to L.A. to find my record and I found it, but at a price. I was chased by every temptation known to mankind. I was promised love. I was promised wealth. I was promised the world. Drugs, women, stardom, all the cliches hounding me and biting at my heels. I got caught up in it. I was strung out and I got lost. I can now put my hands up and admit that. For a while I lost my wife. I lost my family and friends and mostly, I lost my mind.”
“This song, ‘Safe & Sound’, came from a moment of pure clarity when I realised I had to turn my life around and just deliver this record. I was held up in my fugitive apartment and these people were not angels at all, they were gunning to take away everything I loved!”
Crafting sounds for well over a decade, The Big Pink have received praise from the likes of The Times, Rolling Stone, NME, CLASH, The Line of Best Fit, DORK, DIY and more.
The group have also announced details of an official album release party on 5th October in London – tickets here.
