NEW EP : Big Image / Something / Live Session from Aston Villa FC

BIG IMAGE

SOMETHING / LIVE SESSION @ ASTON VILLA FC

 HUMAN TOUCH IS FOREVER EP / 27 APRIL 2022

BIG IMAGE have shared a live session video for their latest kaleidoscopic indie dance juggernaut SOMETHING filmed at Villa Park, the home of Premier League team ASTON VILLA FC.

This unique opportunity for the four-piece to create a live video inside the football stadium comes as BIG IMAGE have been selected as part of the VILLA INTRODUCING series, showcasing the broad variety of new talent the Midlands has to offer. Directed by Henry Bettany, the opportunity has tied the two passions for music and football together in a very special way.

Speaking about the session, vocalist George Johnson says, “We absolutely loved shooting this at Villa Park. To hear our tunes echoing around the stadium is something I’ll never forget. It made us realise it’s what they’re made for.”

Bassist Luke Morris adds, “Getting the chance to play at my club’s stadium was amazing. Being a supporter my whole life and having the opportunity to just sit in the stands looking out at an empty stadium was a great experience and a memory I’ll cherish forever.”

The soundtrack to making up for many lost nights out during the past two years, the single is another euphoric number from the Birmingham-based quartet that aches to be reverberated around sticky-floored venues with a mate on either arm singing along or, in this case, a chant-worthy chorus to be hollered from the terraces.

SOMETHING is taken from the band’s new EP, HUMAN TOUCH IS FOREVER, due for release on 27 April. Featuring previous singles Parallel Love Affair and the Radio X playlisted Crazier as well as another new track – Sleeping Alone – it’s a big milestone in the band’s career to date. Previously working under the name Ivory Wave, this will be the quartet’s first body of work as BIG IMAGE. The band will showcase the new EP at their headline London show on Wednesday 4 May at Sebright Arms – tickets here

The announcement follows a successful 2021 for BIG IMAGE which saw them play the This Feeling stage at the Isle of Wight Festival and a raucous, intimate hometown show at Birmingham Sunflower Lounge to celebrate their debut single.

They also appeared on Scruff of The Neck TV, featuring a live session and interview with Jack Wood from Radio X, and were chosen to appear in the Scotts Menswear nationwide autumn / winter campaign alongside Sam Fender and Bru-C. Now, with the addition of live dates and the countdown on to their debut EP, BIG IMAGE keeps getting bigger and bigger.

BIG IMAGE – George, vocals; Luke, bass; Connor, guitar; and Seb, drums – combine the reverb-drenched piano of house, the propulsive breakbeats of drum and bass, and the bubbling buoyancy of baggy to create a cocktail sound that is entirely theirs. The band were previously known under the name IVORY WAVE and have already built a considerable live following through festival appearances and support slots with the likes of DMA’S, The Sherlocks and The Twang.

The sudden pause in touring last year led to an opportunity to refocus, rebrand, and hone their sound into something altogether more ambitious for this year and beyond. With their debut EP on the horizon and an album in the pipeline, BIG IMAGE is ready to reach anyone and everyone with an exciting array of unifying Saturday night anthems.
