Premiering via Rolling Stone Australia, Sydney’s own Big White have returned with a muscular new track ‘On and On’. New to the Spunk! roster, the energetic five-piece share the track as a first preview of a new full-length album due Autumn 2018.

Likened to The Cure, Talking Heads and The Go-Betweens, Big White’s music is diverse in both influence and style, touching on British New Wave sounds with Australian jangle pop.

Singer/guitarist Cody Munro Moore says of ‘On and On’: “We sing about temporary friends and longstanding relationships; how every little surprise, every new person and idea you come into contact with signals small changes that influence a changing idea of what is 'you' and how yourself interacts with everyone else's changing forms. While recorded in the countryside, this was a chance for us to make something that got to the sharp edge as quick, and with as much urgency that a pop song could take."

Big White signed to Burger Records in 2015 after being scouted at a pub in Bondi, Sydney, which led to their US debut at SXSW that year, a US tour and performance at Burgerama with Ty Segall and Ariel Pink.

In 2016 they released their debut album ‘Teenage Dreams’ and spent 9 weeks touring it throughoutNorth America, the UK / EU completely self-funded. It was during this time that they somehow found time to bunker down in various recordings studios in Los Angeles, New York and Berlin to start working on this forthcoming album (that is, alongside spending 4 weeks without accommodation, playing 11 nights back to back in NYC, almost burning down a venue and getting kicked out of a band room in Berlin when Green Day came for a surprise set). Needless to say, the result is an eclectic and energetic record filled with sharp lyricism replete with introspection and worldly insight.

Championed internationally by the likes of the NME, Clash, Louder Than War, DIY and Matt Wilkinson's Beats 1 London show, Big White will be bringing their new tunes to an audience closer to home, with the launch of 'On and On' this Saturday 18th November with an afternoon show at their local, The Lansdowne, Sydney.
