Think Big, Think Pink

I've had this week's song up my sleeve for a while. It's 'Dominos,' a cavernous and catchy offering from award-winning UK electro-rock duo The Big Pink.

Both of the Pinksters, pictured left, are multi-instrumentalists and their unique, trippy but rock-edged sound won them (to my surprise) the NME Radar award for Best New Act of 2009; 'Dominos' also won best track... Big Pink, incidentally, is also the nickname of Portland, Oregon's tallest building, the 536-foot, 42 story US Bancorp Tower, pictured right.

The Pinksters' 'Dominos' video is a very artsy and cinematic take on a live studio rendition..

Big Pink's other big single, 'Velvet,' is two parts shoegazing, and one part each psychedelia (the video) and electro-rock. Artsy but simple black-and-white clip riffs on camera angles and images..
