Melbourne duo Big Words return with the long-awaited release of ‘Slow Dance’. Their first new material in over a year ‘Slow Dance’ is a brand new A/B Side featuring two songs of a very different tone yet undeniably complimenting characteristics.

“Slow dance with me and tell me that I’m pretty with your arms around my neck”. Laced with catchy guitar hooks and slick 60’s harmonies, the new single is both emotionally hard hitting and infectious. Featuring the unique flow of co vocalist Kieren Lee and production from the widely acclaimed beat extraordinaire Swell you will have a hard time getting this one out of your head!

The B side, titled ‘Girl With The Golden Skin’ is again a different direction for Big Words. Inspired by the classic catalogue of The Beach Boys and contempories Rex Orange County, the harmony driven pop song is a statement piece in their unique approach to song writing. With beautiful guitars and a bridge inspired by old school N*E*R*D, this song is the perfect accompaniment to ‘Slow Dance’.

‘Slow Dance’ arrives shortly after news Big Words are leading the charge for the exciting new label Daily Nightly, (The latest Untitled Group / Beyond The Valley and Caroline Australia collaboration). A well-timed signing well and truly cementing themselves a cult-like following since the release of their 2017 debut EP ‘Hollywood, A Beautiful Coincidence’. Following the release of the EP, they’ve managed to clock 3,800,000 streams on Spotify and sell out every Melbourne standalone event since, including most recently selling out 3 back to back Abbotsford Convent Oratory’s (600 tickets) which saw them convert a unique old Melbourne church unseen by the music industry into a 360 degree viewing space facing a uniquely positioned centre stage (Link to live stream).

Outside of headline shows, Big Words are confirmed to support Tash Sultana on her 2019 national tour for Fremantle, Sunshine Coast and Hobart. Also to come in 2018 includes Beyond The Valley main stage on New Year’s Eve, as well as headlining a stacked local lineup for The Inn Car Park Festival Geelong.

Adding to the list of impressive achievements for a band who formed little under two years ago (2016). Big Wordsrecently warmed up for Kaiit as the main support for the Melbourne leg of her tour, played at Lost Picnic Melbourne alongside Tash Sultana, Meg Mac and Marlon Williams and headlined the Daily Nightly unofficial showcase at BIGSOUND.
