The latest single from Teesside band Serinette, Bigger Better is a much more mellow affair than last year's Pushing Me Slowly/ Roadshow And The Hitchhiker. In singer Lou's words, it's about 'rising above those people and situations that knock you down. How we all need a little help to see clearly'. Inspiring rather than introspective, it has a strong melody and the kind of rock-ballad kick that has a real commercial appeal.
Released last month, the track has drawn inevitable comparisons to Paramore - in fairness I can see why, and it's a hell of a compliment. Lou's delivery goes from soft and soothing to powerful and intense as the sound soars. Awesome played live, this is a hard-hitting tune with a message, and a beautifully shot video which you can watch below.
Catch Serinette live at Stockton Calling on April 4th at the Georgian Theatre at 5.30pm.
