We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Big Mess’ new music video for their song “Pick Ur Queen” (watch it below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming album Try To Enjoy It, which is scheduled to be released through Indisciplinarian on September 29th.
Big Mess guitarist and main songwriter Tobias Bendixen commented on the song:
“‘Pick Ur Queen’ showcases our direct, poppy side and is a song of new love and letting down your guard. The title is not to be taken as heteronormative as it may seem – it is actually referring to my own fluctuating gender expressions as well as Poison Ideas hardcore classic ‘Pick Your King.'”
Copenhagen-based melodic punk rockers Big Mess has set the release of their second album Try To Enjoy It for September 29th via Indisciplinarian.
In 2016, Big Mess released their debut LP You Know I Care, which caused punks to hum along throughout Copenhagen. It’s hard not to – the band’s music is melodic, unpretentious and personal. Big Mess’ new record is called Try To Enjoy It and consists of 12 melodic, energetic songs about heartbreak, illness and gender identity.
Try To Enjoy It shines with its colorful instrumentation born out of imagination, play and impulsive experimentation. The record is produced by Big Mess and Emil Hassing, mastered by Danish punk legend Peter Peter (Sort Sol, Bleeder Group) and bears the artwork of Anna Sofie Mørch Bendixen.
