Little Comets Promo

Little Comets broke out of North East England in 2008 with their self-described kitchen sink indie: intricate, smart pop music with rhythmic Afro-beat influences.  The trio channels the energy and fun of contemporaries Vampire Weekend, Givers, and Ra Ra Riot with big strides toward classic pop forefathers.

On Jennifer, itchy, staccato guitars tease out the story of a tight-lipped lover as the rhythm section jaunts happily to a Graceland groove.  It’s a refreshing journey through cascading melodies and a wail of a hook that would make Steve Winwood smile.  Even potentially heavy diction (taciturn, alacrity) is buoyed on the track’s impeccable flow.

The Comets’ sophomore LP, Life Is Elsewhere, streaks stateside August 20 care of Nashville’s Dualtone label.
