BIG DAY - "W ŚWIETLE I WE MGLE" (1994)

Big Day is an alternative pop-rock band from Olsztyn. Formed in 1994, they quickly showed a peculiar psychedelic sound, mixing jangling guitars and distortions, muscular rock progressions and ethereal atmospheres. On this debut album you can hear the influence of British shoegaze and Madchester movements, which was kinda unusual, if you consider that in the mid 90s nearly every Polish rock band with a female singer played grunge. 

What makes their music so exciting - apart from the dynamic rhythm section - is the combination of male and female vocals, the first provided by bass guitarist and lyrics writer Marcin Ciurapiński, the second by his wife Anna Zalewska, who has become the symbol of the band for the public.

"W świetle i we mgle" was not a big seller at the time, but the band reached an intense period of fame soon after, between 1995 and 1997 (their second album, "Kaleidoscop", surpassed the 100.000 copies mark).
