London’s beloved DIY duo Panic Pocket (Sophie Peacock and Natalie Healey) have a fab single out today, ‘Mr Big’! LOUD WOMEN is excited to bring you a first listen.
‘Mr Big’ is, they say, the result of too many formative Sex And The City marathons. It’s about desperately wanting your close friend to stop defining herself by her relationship status and focus instead on friendship. Hard relate! Natalie says:
“Sophie and I probably spend too much time watching TV. But whatever your thoughts on SATC (and, OK, it hasn’t dated well!), you can probably relate to having someone close to you who spends all their time distracted, wondering where they stand with a potential – and probably unworthy – partner. This song is our Miranda moment; getting real about how toxic the subject of your best friend’s obsession really is.”
“Take your best friends on dates and treat them like your soulmate because chances are, they’ll love you better than any Manhattan investment banker ever could.”
The track was recorded at the legendary Dean Street Studios, thanks to the generosity of King of the Scene, Keith Top of The Pops, with Healey and Christabel from Wolf Girl on bass and drums respectively.
LOUD WOMEN is stoked to bring you a first listen – enjoy!
Catch Panic Pocket live on 8 December at The 1 in 12 Club Bradford w/ Fightmilk and Ghost Guilt.
