Big Girl are an ambitious band, working to break the mold, fusing an array of elements into their songs, defying the tried and the true. All of their work, plus or minus, is supported by sharp, superior musicianship. “Instructions 2 Say Sorry” has an extended instrumental intro before moving into alt-rock mode. Singer Kaitlin has a theatrical, show-tune quality that seems stilted, out of place. Stronger is “Forever” a dark, atmospheric ballad where the lead vocal attains a higher register and suggests a Billie Eilish energy. The hypnotic “Black-Eyed Susan” has horns, a cool cadence, a big high in the lead vocal, a drum explosion, and absolutely angelic backup singers. Big Girl is a tight, rockin’ band that needs more time and effort to fully gel.
