Big Fresh

Big Fresh


Crystalline pop rainbows beamed through a prism. An ambitious tapestry of danceable hits, bubbling soundscapes, electric light harmonies, and synthetic orchestrations from Lexington, Kentucky's avant-garde heroes (including members of The Apples in stereo and Ulysses).


Big Fresh is an indie-pop collective from Lexington, Kentucky, U.S.A. who have been performing and recording together for ten years. Members of the group also play in The Apples in Stereo, Ulysses, and Deek Hoi.

Equally acclaimed for ambitous studio productions, and for hyperactive live shows incorporating elements of absurdist performance art, the members of Big Fresh appear together in various combinations. From garagey new wave rockers, to electronic experimentalists, to an eight-piece orchestra with dense vocal and instrumental arrangements reminiscent of Smile-era Beach Boys, one never knows what to expect when Big Fresh take the stage.

The group's brand new record "B.F.F.: Big Fresh Forever" (Garden Gate Records, 2008) was seven years in the making: time well-spent, apparent in the wild splashes of color and infinite number of pop hooks.

Lexington Herald-Leader: "For more than a decade, the band has mixed summery soul, pop, dance grooves and more into a bright sound all its own."

Optical Atlas:"B.F.F. plays like a great lost prog-rock album, as though Brian Wilson had tried to revisit Smile in the 70's with help from ELO."
