Introducing: Big Deal

Those of you looking for an album to soundtrack your gloomy winter, look no further than, Big Deal. The London duo released their debut album Lights Out, on Tuesday and will perform a few shows in the US this spring, including a showcase at SXSW. To say their sound is "stripped-down" would be an understatement.

Armed only with guitars and intimate lyrics, Alice Costelloe and Kacey Underwood, turn simple confessions into indie-pop gems. The innocence of Homework is a prime example that turns the intensity of new love into a debilitating disease, "Can't do my homework, can't concentrate/ It's ruining my grades, I can't think straight." While most of us have felt this anxiety at one time or another, very few could describe it in 2 and half minutes.
