‘Love in the 4th Dimension’ is the kind of musical roast that’d have Nigella beaming with pride, letting loose mildly suggestive monologues praising the technique and tantalising going on here.
Debut album ‘Love In The 4th Dimension’ from The Big Moon is a non-stop pleasure to listen to from the moment the guitar shredding starts on ‘Sucker’. It’s fresh and fun, consisting of improved renditions of fan favourites, whacky touches and new numbers.
It might not break the mould but then not all great albums have to. Sometimes all you need is an escape; a world of fun to jump into when you need a little pick me up. The Big Moon have always been good at that.
Nostalgia for noughties and Britpop guitar hits echoes throughout – but played by a gang of twentysomethings, its wide-eyed conviction amplifies the emotional carnage.
Their full-length arrival comes without the rawness often seen on debuts, an attribute working for and against them, and the energy sags by the end, but the balancing act achieved between weary soulfulness and excitement is not bad at all.
