The band brings forth a certain je ne sais quoi to the song that is sure to seduce listeners from varying age and demographics and its ability to capture universal experiences and combine it with a modish funk bassline makes this an early contender for sleeper hit of the spring season. This is a song that is hard not to love, and with their mosaic-like blend of poetry and versatile instrumental, there’s no reason to even try. The accompanying video is a vibrantly radiant spectacle complete with exhilarating, out-of-this-world choreography.
Oozing with understated grooves and subtle yet solid melodic songwriting, Big Words are a five-piece funk-pop-R&B group from Melbourne, Australia led by Will Scullin and Kieren Lee. Friends since their teens and describing themselves as “two lonely boys lost on the moon,” Will and Kieren create scruffy soul with emotionally honest lyrics that resonate long after the final chords have faded, drawing inspiration from an array of musical influences as diverse as Coldplay, Amy Winehouse, 50 Cent, and both of the best Franks: Sinatra and Ocean.
With coveted placements on the highly influential Fresh Finds and Viral Hits playlists with the genre-bending “Slow Dance”—which effortlessly switches between guitar-driven rock and swagger-dripping funk—and the John Mayer-meets-D’Angelo indie-R&B cut “The Answer,” the band has garnered over 5 million streams on Spotify and continues to sell out venues and perform at festivals across Australia. Look out for their follow-up to their debut EP, Hollywood, a Beautiful Coincidence, with the forthcoming new Daft Punk-disco-tinged track “TTYDTM” (Things That You Do to Me) released April 12 via the Daily Nightly label and an Australian tour later this year. Expect big things from Big Words.
