TUNE Little Grim - Play Nice
The final single from their forthcoming EP, Little Grim’s ‘Play Nice’ is a mesmerising alt-indie hit. Deftly pairing Joe Murphy’s high and delicate vocals with the distinct groove of the low-fi bass line, ‘Play Nice’ delivers a powerful message of love and loss atop a pulsing rhythm guaranteed to make you dance.
Parroting the words of an angry mother telling off her child — “Why don’t you play nice?” Joe Murphy’s lyrics take a twisted look at nostalgia, and how the desire to look through rose tinted glasses can come back to haunt you. “‘Play nice’ is a song to silence the inner bully. It’s for people trying to overcome that voice of self-doubt” says Murphy.
