Bluesy trio from Edinburgh
Big Hand combine the catchiness of bubblegum pop with the balledry of gypsy folk, the manic energy of early Chillis with the mellow lilt of Manu Chao, the raw buzz of punk with the driving grooves of four to the floor disco rock, the soulful lyrics of motown with the heartbreaking harmonies of the Beachboys, the angular spikey rhythms of the Arctic Monkeys and the intricacies of Radiohead with the simple killer hooks of James Brown. All this and in damn sharp suits to boot.
Cari Q’s fervor and enthusiasm for songwriting are qualities to be sought after in this era. Straightforward melodies accompany her resonant lyrics as she pushes the limits of contemporary pop music. Echoing her predecessors, Cari Q’s unique sound evokes memories of Janis Joplin and Loretta Lynn.
