Big Deal - Lights Out (Album review for Buzz)

Words originally published in Cardiff magazine Buzz, and can be found in the August 2011 issue

Big Deal ***
Lights Out (Mute)

You know when something is just 'nice'? I'm sure you do, it's a fairly simple concept. Well, take that, apply it to music, and you might end up somewhere close to the debut album from boy-girl duo Big Deal. Armed with only an acoustic guitar, an electric guitar, and the power of their harmonised voices, the result is relaxing, enjoyable, emotive, and delicate fuzzyindiepopfolk. Pleasant it certainly is, but it’s just not profound. JM
