Big Science - Skyscraper Sound

Big Science are :

Jason Hendrix
Jason Richards
Jason Clark
Jeremy Pena


Fitting for Big Science to call their new ep. Skyscraper Sound ( AEMMP ) as this band is known for their soaring sound. This album has some rougher edges than their first release The Coast of Nowhere (my review here). They still have great production and harmonies, it just has a rougher/less poppy sound to it that adds a new depth to this ep. Big Science builds more huge sounds on this ep. "Flags" is representative of the bands style. It's got the 90's guitar and a killer rhythm section that are capped off by vocals that keep on rising. I Love the space in between the sounds on "Flags". It makes the loudest punch of sound really stand out. I was fortunate enough to see them play some of the songs off this release at a show at Lincoln Hall. (My videos of that show here).

The ep release show for Skyscraper Sound is this Sat. May 22 at Subterranean bar in Chicago. I'll be there. Come on out, they are a blast live.

Thanks to Rebecca at Betta Promotions. Also to the guys in the band who are so accommodating.
