Published Feb 20, 2013Modern Brit pop duo the Big Pink released their somewhat disappointing sophomore album Future This last year, and though they're already deep into the next LP, multi-instrumentalist Milo Cordell has left the band.
Cordell plans to spend his time in New York focusing on his Merok imprint, which has put out major releases from Gatekeeper, Teengirl Fantasy, Blondes and many others.
Though that means the Big Pink is pretty much a solo project, frontman Robbie Furze explained that he's still at work on new material. He's also collaborating with members of Supreme Cuts, The-Drum and Fever Ray performer Van Rivers.
Furze posted the following explanation on the band's Facebook page:
Milo has moved to NYC to run his label, Merok and is no longer an active member in the big pink. I am in the studio at the moment and well into the 3rd big pink record. I have been working with a variety of different people, including supreme cuts, the drum, van rivers (fever ray) and andrew wyatt. Me and vicky have recently returned to Electric lady studio in New York, where we recorded " a brief history of love" to record and co produce new 3 tracks with john o'mahoney. We are supporting BRMC at the end of march in UK. To road test some new material and blast out some old. Robbie x
