Intro: The Big Pink

Recent winners of NME's Philip Hall Radar Award (basically the band most likely to explode this time next year) The Big Pink follow in the leather booted footsteps of 2008 winners Glasvegas.

Newly signed to the excellent 4AD, The Big Pink are Robbie Furze (guitarist for Alec Empire) and Milo Cordell (founder of Merok Records and the man responsible for bringing Klaxons, Crystal Castles and more recently Telepathe to the world).

From the evidence of the half a dozen available MySpace streams, their sound isn't a million miles away from the moody Scots, with hints of The Jesus and Mary Chain, Spiritualized and Suicide.

Decide for yourself with the video for 'Velvet', below...
