Mikey Wax’s “Big Little Life” is an emotional, passionate single that will have Mikey tattoo his melodies deep into listeners’ minds. The backing instrumentation blends bass with 1980s-tinged guitar, while additional vocal layers reveal themselves like an onion with subsequent plays. Wax’s latest single reaches its next plateau at the 2:45 mark, where the momentum kicks up and the instrumentation stands as a bold counterpoint to Mikey’s vox. Big Little Life is the perfect example of a single that could easily cross over between pop, college rock, and alternative music stations/playlists. Check out the video below the drop.
