“I wanted to give it a sort of early ‘aughts pop production feel, with the interplay between the acoustic guitar figure and the bass synth and the 808 hits during the choruses,” frontwoman Clementine Creevy wrote in a statement. “The lyrics came from feeling like I was growing apart from someone who was close to me in my life, and the song is essentially about heartache, but it’s euphoric at the same time. That’s what I like about it — the intensity of those very personal feelings paired with a sort of huge, exposed energy. I feel like I was able to let a lot out with this song. It feels really special to me.”
‘Big Bang’ marks Cherry Glazerr’s first song of 2021, following December’s ‘Rabbit Hole’. The band’s last album, Stuffed and Ready, came out in 2019.
