The track rocketed up to #1 on the Alternative chart at Billboard and has amassed tens of millions of plays at Spotify and YouTube. Big Data made their television debut playing "Dangerous" on Late Night with Seth Meyers and has been featured in the Wall Street Journal and Entertainment Weekly, named one of Rolling Stone's "10 New Artists You Need to Know" and picked for USA Today's "On the Verge" spotlight. The band's new album, 2.0, comes out March 23rd and features a wide variety of guest spots from Rivers Cuomo (Weezer), Twin Shadow, White Sea, Jenn Wasner (Wye Oak), Dylan Rau (Bear Hands), Jamie Lidell, and Kimbra.
