Review: The Big Pink's 'Future This'

Robbie Furze and Milo Cordell of The Big Pink attend a music festival in Newport, Isle of Wight on June 13, 2010.

Story highlights

  • The Big Pink's latest album is produced by indie kingmaker Paul Epworth (Adele)
  • "Future This" updates the best of '80s shoegaze with breakbeat rhythms and arena-worthy choruses
  • Frontman Robbie Furze finds love washing over him "in a soft explosion"
Are the Big Pink young enough to have grown up on their parents' Jesus and Mary Chain records?
Sure sounds like it on "Future This."
The U.K. duo's latest, produced by indie kingmaker Paul Epworth (Adele), updates the best of '80s shoegaze with breakbeat rhythms and arena-worthy choruses.
On the title track, frontman Robbie Furze finds love washing over him ''in a soft explosion.''
Which isn't a bad way to describe getting swept up in their massive pop hooks.
