TUNE Little Grim - All on Black
For fans of Everything Everything, Yonaka, and Alt-J, 'All on Black’ preaches the importance of backing yourself. It boasts a heavier side to Little Grim whilst flaunting their tongue-in-cheek lyricism and playful riffs.
The song came together when the band moved into London for the first time, writing during the twilight hours when they could escape their day jobs.
Singer Joe Murphy says, “The band were working multiple jobs and we barely ever saw each other. We were passing ships in the night. So, we hooked up a laptop to a microphone in the hallway and would find new recording ideas mysteriously left for one another. I’d wake up one day, open it up, and find a completely new section of the song waiting for me. It felt completely unpredictable”
The band found themselves drawing inspiration from the 90’s video games they played throughout their youth (particularly Star Wars Pod Racers) to lend a unique and nostalgic soundscape to the track.
