the big believe with faye hunter
let's pretend we're spies
‘let’s pretend we’re spies’ is not about spies - rather it’s a cool, fun, folk/rock romp about uplift through introspection & the joy of knowing you’re better off for it.
& that’s just the a side. the b side of this 7-inch takes the song in a synth direction, making it sound somewhat spooky. the big believe is a band from eastbourne, britain led by amanda thompson, whose deep voice sounds sweet & comforting. what makes this 7-inch sound bittersweet is that this is the final recording of faye hunter, who died in july of this year under tragic circumstances. faye sounds wonderful here & adds a layer of sinister undercurrent with her vocals.
