RELEASED JUNE 2017 - THE 2ND EP FEATURES THREE BRAND NEW SONGS.
1) YOU'RE NOT THE ONLY FAILURE HERE
2) JUST LET ME SLEEP
3) REAL SMOOTH HANDSOME MAN
Three songs recorded in living rooms across Brislington but sounding like a million dollars. This EP for the first time features great lead female vocals on Just Let Me Sleep from Rois Soares and a real political heavyweight in Real Smooth Handsome Man which sees Trump as the Emperor in the fable - "Come on, put your clothes back on"..
RELEASED DECEMBER 2017 - "SOFT LAD EP"
First release from the Big However on Breaking Down is the “Soft Lad EP”, a taster for their debut LP “Waiting for the Trawler to Come Home” which will (they tell us) be finished at some point during 2018.
The arrangements are delicate, various and unpredictable. The lyrics are always about something – be it the challenges of a failing relationship, the possible implications of the disappearance of hitchhikers, trumps testicles, the life enhancing madness of the soviet space programme, Hard Brexit, or the redemptive power of the right kind of love.
Three tracks, "I'm Yuri Gagarin", "Soft Lad" and "The Last Hitchhiker" - you can buy on real CD format from THE SHOP.
