Big Image drop a new escapist pop banger and video ahead of their UK tour next February

You may have heard of Big Image from their appearances at several festivals this year or their mix of house beats, pop vocals and youthful energy. This new track, ‘Late Nights’ is the follow up to their EP ‘Human Touch Is Forever’ and follows on from support slots with Circa Waves and DMAs.

Frontman George Johnson describes the track as “A song about going out, living in the moment and forgetting about the real world” and this escapism is clear through the party energy and the night out video. Instrumentally, the band combine a house beat and piano stabs, energetic synth lines and vocal manipulation.

Frontman Johnson handles the track with confidence brings forward a house-pop vocal delivery. Lyrically we are given a painted picture of a night out, capturing the joy of leaving everything behind for one night, it’s masterful imagery.
