We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Spirit / Wholes, the debut album from D.C. shoegaze quartet Big Hush, which will be out this Friday August 11th on Robotic Empire.
Featuring members of Pygmy Lush and Flasher, Big Hush is made up of four friends: Genevieve Ludwig, Owen Wuerker, Chris Taylor, and Emma Baker. Their music is a mesmerizing combination of moody indie-pop tunes with fiece shoegaze riffs and dense textures. The band’s first two cassettes, recorded in 2014 and 2015, are now getting pressed to vinyl as Spirit/Wholes, with a new song included.
Fuzzy and infectious catchy, Spirit / Wholes is an impressive debut of a band that embraces experimentation along with their friendship intimacy. Listen to Big Hush’s amazing debut album below and read what they have to say about the record.
““Spirit/Wholes was written as two separate EPs over the span of three years, and in a way the songs are reactionary tales.
That’s the way I’ve always thought of them. Each new song is a reaction to the song written before it, and the space that song inhibits, each void created by one song, is filled by the next, and so reveals a new void.
The EPs seem to do the same. It’s funny, how a lot of things in life tend to embody a reactionary nature, capitalism is dictated by market reactions, relationships evolve dictated on reactions to each other, the weather reacts to changes in currents and temperature.
This record is sort of an unintentional embodiment of that aspect, following a path of necessary change, in contrast to what’s always been familiar.”
