Big Orange tease forthcoming LP with new single ‘This Won’t Hurt A Bit’

Described as one of WA’s strongest rock acts” (Pilerats) and “Indie Rock and Roll as it should be” (LA on Lock), Big Orange combines the ear-worming sensibilities of pop with the slick, rollicking energy of rock. They announce sophomore record The Perils of Desire with latest trip-hop tinged rock single This Won’t Hurt A Bit. 

Grounded in driving rhythm, built upon by grandiose layers of string-sounding synths and atmospheric guitar, This Won’t Hurt A Bitis a lush sonic scape, fused by Daniel’s raw, poignant vocals and existential lyricism “There was a fire in your eyes, slowly dying inside, lie awake and wonder why, you’re not the only one, through the labyrinth of life and all the horrors it holds, It drains your bones and haunts your dreams and it destroys you”. 

He explains “this is a song about my deep insecurities. It came from my dark subconscious, and  the trepidation of the world in which I was cast. I think many people could relate to this”.

Reminiscent of the 90s trip hop movement: Portishead, Massive Attack, Moby. All the while keeping consistent with the Big O rock sound and style, This Won’t Hurt A Bit was recorded by Davis at his home studio, then taken to Dave Parkin at Blackbird Sound Studios, Perth and mastered by Brain Lucy at Magic Garden, NYC. It precedes Big Orange’s upcoming 10-track LP The Perils of Desire due for release August, 2024 through 2x West Australian Music (WAM) ‘Label of the Year’ Blue Grey Pink.
