TUNE Little Comets - M62
After seeing away January’s blues, Little Comets are bounding forward with some exciting plans for the coming year.
Having spent the winter tucked away in Frank Sinatra’s derelict former Bordeaux holiday home and a church near Bilbao; a clutch of singles now await release ahead of a highly anticipated fifth album.
Following a busy 2017 of sell-out headline dates and an arena tour with Catfish and the Bottlemen, Newcastle’s indie heroes wanted a change of scene for the recording of new material and so decamped to Europe for a month in various spaces and buildings.
New song M62 contains all the hallmarks of a Little Comets’ record – pulsating rhythms, quaint lyrical observations and the perfect balance between positive reflection and tense insinuation. Set within the arching tale of a couple’s romance along this undulating highway, M62 is three minute gem of longitudinal wonder. A handmade limited edition personalised 7” vinyl will accompany the release.
With three further singles, UK and European festival appearances and an album to follow; the Spring, the Summer and even Autumn promise to be a fruitful time for these shiny Northern wildebeests.
Little Comets tour the UK in April, with tickets available from all major outlets.
