Big Hug - Don't Threaten Me With A Good

Release Date: Out Now

This is the debut EP from London based trio Big Hug and it is a five track collection of intensely brilliant energy and song-writing. The fabulously titled 'Don't Threaten Me With A Good Time' opens with 'Raise The Bar' which sets to knocking your socks off straight away intense guitars, driving beats and vocal harmonies that put me in mind of Young Knives in their prime. 'Guiness Paltrow' has a more brooding energy with a rolling bass line which, when mixed with snapping drums and pinging guitars, create a sound that is somewhere between Maximo Park and Cable. 

The mid-point of the EP is 'Danny Is The Greatest Lover' which has a brilliantly 90s indie-grunge energy before settling in to title track 'Don't Threaten Me With A Good Time' which emerges slowly with 80s indie inspired guitars and a bass line that demands your attention in the mix. The Biffy Clyro-esque energy of EP closer 'All Yours' is a brilliantly erratic, distracted and fizzing way to close out and suggests that a live set by these three amigos would be an intense and brilliantly exhausting experience.
