An English take on full-size, brash American stadium rock, Big Num putting a completely wonderful modern alternative, heavy scope onto a soulful and honest vocal that sheers Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones with glints of Bono or Jack White. Classic rock in the vein of Billy Idol dazzlingly sped up to a contemporary model with an eccentric overtone of grinding, stirring guitars and lyrics that demand head-bang brutality. They serve shout-a-long enthralment with an accomplished style and batch of finely and expertly arranged songs which sound well rounded and memorable. This band is an absolutely lustrous and gallant gem in the British rock scene. If you regard classic rock as being about ancient rites and anachronistic melodies, then Big Num will change your mind. Taking influences from Led Zeppelin, Pixies and Rose Tattoo, this foursome have updated the concept of heritage rock and given it a real 21st century shine. Their current two-tracker, Favourite Gun, is classy, adventurous, powerful, and focused directly on the alternative rock scene. Theyre going places dont miss out on these bright Brits.
