Big Words (lead by the creative duo and childhood friends—Will Scullin & Kieren Lee) is an “adored outfit from Melbourne, Australia.” Not too long ago, they released a heartfelt neo-soul tune, entitled, “Cicada”, co-produced with Swell and Will Scullin.

“This song is about being a loser but also realizing that’s your greatest strength. Fear of failure is something we all feel. This song is about letting that go and being your unapologetic self.” — Big Words

‘Cicada’ tells an honest tale of a young guy who desires to give all of his devotion to his love interest. 

The likable tune contains a “fall-in-love” narrative, pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies. Also, the song possesses melodic instrumentation flavored with neo-soul, hip-hop, and electronica elements.

Since forming in their teenage years, Big Words has crafted an unmistakable sound that tears down boundaries and disregards genres.

So far, their music has amassed over seven million streams online via Spotify.

Kieren’s eclectic writing style developed over the years of busking on the streets of Melbourne. And Will’s signature falsetto and production style has flourished from years of writing and recording at home.

Big Words’ sound is inspired by Frank Ocean, Chet Baker, Prince, Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson, Daniel Caesar, and Khruangbin.
