“Contact” by Big Bliss
BTR Live Studio | ep652 | Oct 13, 2017
Big Bliss is a Brooklyn band formed in 2015 by brothers Cory (drums) and Tim (vocals, guitar) Race, along with bassist Wallace May. The trio blasts out a furious sort of post-punk and indie rock that draws a bit on shoegaze (think perhaps a little Mission Of Burma here, a little Interpol there), and have been playing shows almost constantly since their inception. We finally got them to take a breather and stop by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn to show us what they’ve been up to.

The “Fortune” single is available now from Exit Stencil Recordings.

Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
