Those little things your significant other does, using a “change purse as a wallet” or “talking out loud like a podcast,” put a smile on your face for no particular reason. Big Stuff celebrate it all in their latest single, “Don’t Get Me Started.”
With tender harmony and gently ribbing lyrics, Grace Mann and Franklin Rankin reveal all the little idiosyncrasies they’ve noticed about each other. Clever little phrasal anecdotes like “lemonade and chocolate” build to the great proclamation that they’ll each “love you at the top of my lungs.”
According to the duo, they wanted to explore that “burst of happiness over something so small” and its contagious nature. The gentle guitar and crisp drums bounce the simple, yet loving melody along. Pops of synth brighten the offbeat. Even the pauses between phrases feel filled with longing looks and secret giggles.
The smooth bridge with the guitar riff that bubbles along over the harmony feels especially poignant, like a moment for the two to watch each other again for more brilliant observations of modern life and their love. And it’s impossible not to smile with each beat of “Don’t Get Me Started”.
