Big White you know I love you

We’ve been big fans of Big White for a fair while now. The Sydney-siders are fine purveyors of New Wave-inspired jangle pop with big bold vocals and plenty of sunny guitar work. They’ve been going from strength to strength in 2015 with two singles You Know I Love You and I Can’t Tell making a pretty big splash early on in the year.

But their latest single Dinosaur City is where they really hit their stride. The track claimed a spot in the top 10 of Happy’s top 100 songs of the year, so we asked them if they could detail their 10 favourite tracks of the year. There are some serious bangers in there.

Big White Dinosaur City

They snuck into the top 10 of Happy’s top 100 tracks of the year with Dinosaur City, so we asked Big White what their top tunes of the year are.

Flowertruck – Sunshower

Hamish told us we better put it at number one otherwise he wouldn’t do the dishes.

Den – Just Hold

One for the no holds back. Straight up. Smart as it gets.

Greenwave Beth – I Owe You One

Absolutely absolutely.

New Lovers – Fatal Shore

A rolling post colonial Australian drama at its best.

Sweat Saint – Voluptuaries

A beautifully written song from the heart of Sydney music that’s going to be coming in hot for new releases of 2016.

You Beauty – Same Damn Thing

Now I’m not one for riffs. But those riffs. Geez.

Shining Bird – Rivermouth

Another Australian drama played out like a good read.

Angie – Out of Age

Best tambourine player since BJM.

The Garden – HA HA

One of our favourite bands that we played with from 2015.

Ruth Carp and the Fish Heads – High Fidelity

A great Dulwhich Hill breakaway.
