Big Deal are a boy/girl indie pop duo comprised of Kacey Underwood (from California) and Alice Costelloe (from the UK). Their debut, Lights Out, was an understated one, centered around just two guitars (one electric, one acoustic) and their two voices. Following the album’s release in August of 2011, Big Deal made plans to play several U.K. festivals, including Wireless, Lounge on the Farm, and Reading and Leeds.
June Gloom, their second album, comes to the UK on June 3rd 2013 and to the US on the 4th. Big Deal is signed with the independent label Mute Records (founded in 1978).
Quite understandably, especially for anyone who has seen Big Deal’s intimate, if almost coy, stage act, or listened to the band’s pining songs, audiences frequently mistake their working relationship for a romantic one.
