Sydney five-piece Big White have released the film clip for their new single ‘EOFY’; recorded in a converted bomb shelter somewhere in Berlin. Three minutes of easy-going, twangy guitar pop; the song (presumably an acronym??) trudges along in a manner reminiscent of similarly twangy guitar pop from earlier times, like the Go-Betweens. However, the somewhat eerie, low lyrics are resonant of other twangy guitar pop from earlier times, like The Smiths. Comparisons aside, the single is a airy, well-recorded offering of dazed-out twang.
The music video was shot at Sydney’s Hurlstone Park, and involves the band engaging in a linear jam on a bowls field before moving to a barber shop to cut each other’s hair and read magazines (and once again jam). Band things, I guess.
‘EOFY’ will likely feature on Big White’s currently unnamed forthcoming EP – until then, they will play shows in both Melbourne and Wollongong with The Laughing Leaves and Flowertruck to promote the single:
7 August, Rad Bar, Wollongong, NSW
15 August, The Tote, Melbourne, Vic
