((Big Deal)) Band Profile and Upcoming Los Angeles Concerts - Oh My Rockness

"All I want to do is talk, but seeing you fucks me up." That's the chorus to one of Big Deal's songs. I feel like that gives you an idea of what this London duo is all about. But my feelings are often wrong (When I don't "stay true to myself," as they say... FART NOISE).

So let me explain further. Big Deal is Alice Costelloe and KC Underwood (oh, he's American; isn't that fun). Together, they write fuzzy, sparse songs full of relationship-weary pathos. These slow moving, mostly acoustic songs are generally about being fucked up and not being able to think straight and just not wanting to think about the problems of love in general. Sounds like a party to me!

If you're in the middle of a painful break-up with a once-significant other, Big Deal is the kind of band that you can listen to so you can feel a little bit better. Someone else has been there, someone else understands! Then again, Big Deal may just accelerate and propel your downward spiral into self-hating misery and total despair. As I say, sounds like a party to me! (Hey, I made it through this band profile without talking about what big deal these two will be! If you mention it in parentheses, it doesn't count!)
