‘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.

The Line of Best Fit

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.

The Guardian

Nostalgia for noughties and Britpop guitar hits echoes throughout – but played by a gang of twentysomethings, its wide-eyed conviction amplifies the emotional carnage.

No Ripcord

Their versatility and ability to channel some of the genuine peaks of the paradigm into their sound is a huge strength, and while it doesn’t break the mould or reinvent the wheel, Love in the 4th Dimension is a very impressive debut.

Under The Radar

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.

Loud and Quiet

On record, ‘Love In The 4th Dimension’ might not hit the heights of The Big Moon’s whirlwind live show but neither does it diminish an instinctively likeable debut.

This is simply addictive.
reminds me of other post punk revival groups of this generation like drowners or catfish but i think they have some more staying power in their different-ness.

Boring - Sucker is a nice tune but the rest of the album is ropey and lacks cohesion
An oddly unknown and underrated album. Cupid is one of the best songs this year.
