Dutch Uncles - Big Balloon

Weird pop with an edge.
Dutch Uncles - Big Balloon
Published: 7:00 am, February 21, 2017
Weird pop with an edge.

Label: Memphis Industries
Released: 17th February 2017
Rating: ★★★★

The best thing about Dutch Uncles’ signature brand of weird pop is that, actually, when you think about it, it doesn’t seem all that weird at all.

While on ‘Big Balloon’ they may often head into an entirely different area code to their peers, their delivery is so confident it feels like a natural step. So while ‘Hiccup’ might be a jumpy, scatter-gun of ideas, it’s also so much damn fun that it goes down as smooth as full fat milk.

Yet another example of how Dutch Uncles make the edges of pop cut all that much sharper. Stephen Ackroyd
