The Big Pink Says They’re Inspired By Kanye West
The Big Pink say that their new album Future This was inspired by Kanye West’s album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
Robbie Furze said he thought the album was amazing. He said: “That record is almost like a rock indie record – it’s the indie rock hip-hop record. It’s so musical and pushes things into lots of different areas. That’s what we wanted to do with this.”
He compared the current album to their 2009 album A Brief History of Love. He added: “Although I love the first record, it was generally quite a down record. The gigs had quite a sombre feel, too, so we wanted to create a different type of energy on this record. It feels like we’ve taken it to the next level and we’ve done a better job. We were so excited to get back into the studio, it was more excitement rather than pressure. Going into it we didn’t have that feeling of, ‘Oh, we have to do the follow-up now’. It was more, ‘Get us back into the studio to write new tracks!’“
