The UK’s male/female duo Big Deal, made up of KC Underwood and Alice Costelloe, has just been signed to the esteemed Mute Records. Their first full length LP will be released this fall.

Fresh off their Camden Crawl gigs in London last weekend, the band continues on their NME UK tour through May, sharing the stage with Anna Calvi.

Britain’s Uncut magazine describes the sound on the band’s first “Homework” track as, “The XX after gorging on John Hughes movies,” which is pretty apropos, since Costelloe’s got one of those haunting, sweet voices that sticks with you. You can check out the video for the song below.
