Heavenly Recordings – April 19th

Bands that should be infinitely bigger, part 426: Stealing Sheep. Seriously though, Emily Lansley, Luciana Mercer and Rebecca Hawley are responsible for some of the most progressive pop songs of the past decade, be it the psych-folk oddities on 2012’s Into The Diamond Sun or the Krautrock-inspired, drum machine- driven experimentation on 2015’s Not Real. The Liverpudlian trio’s third LP is better still, supercharging the sleek, synth-led palette of Not Real with steelpans, buoyant, full-kit percussion, and all manner of electronic whooshes and whizzes, like Delia Derbyshire down the indie disco. Be it ‘Show Love’’s digital dopamine rush, the cosmic tropicalia of ‘Girl’ or the raygun funk of ‘Back In Time’, Big Wows is full to the brim with bold, experimental pop music.
