The London rock group The Bigger Picture have released their upbeat, synth and guitar-heavy track "Empires" as the last single off their new EP A Ghost & A Wish. The band recently played live again at Fiddler's Elbow with acts including Sonic Property and Caper, and are excited to finally release their new EP this weekend with producer Matteo Galesi (Frank Mada, Omahrose, Tarantola, etc).
The single "Empires" follows "Bullets Little Thoughts" and continues the band's trajectory towards a very approachable, energetic rock sound with massive appeal. The track opens with an arpeggiated synth akin to perhaps the intro to the Stranger Things TV show, then drops into a flurry of all instruments in their full glory led by soaring guitar leads.
The chorus really exemplifies the dueling vocalists synergy with soaring, sing-a-long harmonies like "teach me how to feel alive". Overall, "Empires" has great dynamic range with softer passages allowing the synth production to really shine, but balances this with the uplifting chorus hooks and powerful guitar riffs.
The band also worked with Bohemian Basterds to produce a music video for the single which fans of alternative/arena rock should check out!
