News: Big Special Share New Single “Desperate Breakfast”

The UK duo, Big Special, have shared their latest single “Desperate Breakfast.” Following this summer’s “This Here Ain’t Water,” which received high praise in the UK, “Desperate Breakfast” further solidifies the intensity and depth that Big Special is striving to achieve on their new music.

With layers of synth, bolstering percussion, and the guttural punk inflection of singer Joe Hicklin’s voice, “Desperate Breakfast” is a single that packs a punch. On the song Hicklin says, “‘Desperate Breakfast’ is about that first meal of the day you have to force down before you drag yourself to the job you don’t want in the place you don’t want to be, and the normality of having no choice but to take part In that seemingly infinite routine. It is also in part about the similar cycle that occurs in unemployment. Either way, the morning brings desperation.”

The single also comes with a brand new video directed by Tat Vision, which presents the eeriness as well as the humor present in the group’s music. Big Special are continuing to tour through October and November before heading out on a headlining tour in the UK in December. Tickets are available here.
