The members of Big White first met and started making music together when they moved in to a large Italianate Art Deco share house in the inner west of Sydney. The house has an eclectic past having served as a surgery, a brothel, and a boarding home, but is now home to five musicians in their early 20s.

Earlier this year, Big White made their US debut at SXSW, and a tour across the South West of America. Playing a succession of shows from Houston, Dallas, Albuquerque, Flag Staff, and Las Vegas, Big White finished their tour at Burgerama Four at the Observatory in LA with Gang of Four, Ty Segal and Ariel Pink. Burger Records signed the band for the US, after label cofounder Lee Rickard spotted the band at Bondi’s Beach Road Hotel.

Much like the members of the band themselves, Big White’s music is diverse in both influence and style. Touching on British New Wave sounds with Australian jangle pop sensibilities, this is best filed next to The Cure, Talking Heads, and The Twerps.
