:: Something to enjoy!
Big Deal’s sophomore album June Gloom, released about nine months ago, still is one my favourite 2013 albums, impossible to tell how many times I’ve listened to it. The two Londoners Alice Costelloe amd KC Underwood are now further exploring the sound of their last album with a new four-track EP.. The title Sakura is the Japanese word for cherry blossom.
Sakura was released in the UK/Europe on July 14, 2014 via Mute Records. North America sees release of the EP today (July 15). The set is available as digital download only, the limited edition CD already is sold out. You can buy your copy of Sakura from iTunes. The EP includes a new version (reprise) of Talk which was featured on the Big Deal’s debut LP Lights Out three years ago.
Alongside their new EP, Big Deal are releasing a Deluxe Edition of June Gloom on July 21 via Mute. The new version includes five new tracks: two of the Sakura EP tracks (Talk (reprise) and Always Boys), two completely new songs as well as a live version of Teradactol, recorded at Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam. You can pre-order your digital copy from iTunes too.
Always Boys was the first track unveiled off of Sakura about a month ago. The official video for the song premiered a few days ago via Youtube. The clips is directed by Jonny Sanders and produced by Charlotte Knight, watch it above. Big Deal have a handful of UK festival dates coming up in July and August, check out the dates below.
