A Breif History of Love is the first release from the London electro-rock duo The Big Pink comprised of Robbie Furze and Milo Cordell. The album will hit you hard and you'll either love it or come away with mixed feelings. The group carries a unique sound that many American ears might not be accustomed to. I tried describing the sound and came up with 'soft mellow dramatic new age electronic punk rock,' which I later found out is actually more of a combination of what's called shoegaze and techno. Sidenote: Shoegaze was a subgenre of alternative rock that emerged from the UK in the late 80s. There was another aspect to the sound that I also couldn't wrap my head around until I heard that they self produced the album themselves, which is that handcrafted feel that I was sensing. Hits like 'Dominos' and 'Velvet' we surely give the album some mainstream exposure. The album is good, maybe not great, but I can tell you that I'm already excited for the follow-up album. The Big Pink is currently touring now and you can catch them at several major festivals across the U.S. as well as smaller venues throughout the country.
