The Big Pink - Dominos

The latest single from London's electronic rockers The Big Pink is their most refreshingly accessible yet.

It's an almost shoe-gazey piece of drone-noise with a chorus catchier than swine flu. But it's been digitalised, with firm and spongy trip-hop beats underneath Robbie Furze's ecstatic, woozy vocals. The lyrics themselves are lad-rocky but the swirling Horrors-but-dance music gives them a somehow mysterious air.

"These girls fall like dominos", swoons Furze, with a misspelling we can only trust is deliberate.

There's less depth to Dominos than in previous Big Pink single Velvet, but as a window into their world ahead of debut album A Brief History of Love, it is perfect.
