The Big Pink offers up A Brief History of Love on both record and road

on August 27, 2009, 11:30am

A Brief History of Love is the name of the debut full-length from British shoegaze outfit The Big Pink. Due for release on September 22nd via 4AD, this 11-track effort will be important for a variety reasons. First, it will remind the world that shoegaze still exists beyond My Bloody Valentine. Second, it will enable The Big Pink to tour the world, including the U.S., in the months ahead. Lastly, it brings with it a rather cool music video for its first single, “Dominos”, which will promptly be shown — depending if you click on it or not — following these words.
