Indie pop act Big Troubles began working together in 2009, but their music speaks of their love for the sounds of the '80s and '90s, ranging from shoegaze bands, jangle pop, and the C-86 brigade to lo-fi pop and the first stirrings of grunge.
Big Troubles were formed by Alex Craig and Ian Drennan, two friends from Ridgewood, New Jersey who attended high school together. The two shared enthusiasm for the likes of Teenage Fanclub, My Bloody Valentine, the Cleaners from Venus, and Let's Active, and when they both went off to college – Craig attending New York University and Drennan enrolling at Tufts University in Massachusetts – they stayed in touch and began writing songs together.
In 2009, Craig and Drennan started recording as Big Troubles. Their debut, 2010's Worry, was very much a homemade affair, recorded with four-track cassette decks, a primitive drum machine handling the percussion and Craig and Drennan overdubbing overdriven electric guitars and outdated analog synths into the sound of a full band.
On their second album, 2011's Romantic Comedy (recorded with jangle pop hero Mitch Easter), Big Troubles de-emphasized the lo-fi side of their sound and honed in on their pop influences. http://bigtroubles.
