Gossling’s “Big Love” left a big impression after one listen. This alt-pop outfit captured my attention with this dazzling track that runs the gamut from curious and empty to full and shimmering. They play with space by taking advantage of the malleability of their notes. There is an elastic element present, like stretching a rubber band. Each verse pulls the rubber band apart until the tension is too great, and the band is left momentarily quivering, waiting for the snap. Then, the chorus. Providing the bang it releases all of the pent up energy and allows the band to reset. Helen Croome’s voice is slowly pulled apart with the music and joins in its explosive release. Her unique voice cuts through the low ends, grabs you by the hand, and leads you through the songs transformations.
