Engineered and produced over the summer ’16 by Low Four’s Brendan Williams and Jamie Birkett, released February ’17 on Memphis Industries.
Taking musical inspiration from Kate Bush’s The Red Shoes, low-era David Bowie, some slightly-less fashionable records belonging to their dads and east european techno, it’s the fifth Dutch Uncles studio album and the fourth for producer Brendan Williams, following-up 2015’s acclaimed O Shudder.
Big balloon is the latest chapter in Dutch Uncles’ brilliantly witty, hip-swiveling, left-field adventures. Opening with the full throttle, guitar heavy title track: “the song has a simple message: to be content with who you are. If you need help with that, then don’t be ashamed or frustrated,” says vocalist and lyricist Duncan Wallis.
