#108: Big Deal - June Gloom

Following in the vein of various boy/girl combos such as The White Stripes and The Kills are London's modestly named Big Deal. Made up of duo, Alice Costelloe and Kacey Underwood, the band released their d├ębut album 'Lights Out in 2011 to generally favourable responses and now, two years later, the 'anti-twee' troubadours are back with an expanded array of instruments at their disposal. While Lights Out featured just two guitars (one acoustic, one electric), forthcoming sophomore effort June Gloom sees the inclusion of a drummer and a bassist that ultimately fleshes out the overall sound as the band.
