Little Grim

WHEN strutting down a busy suburban street, flares on, partnered with some platform boots there's only one perfect soundtrack, Little Grim's latest single, Sparks. 

Released on 3rd June courtesy of Newspeak Records, this seventies funk tune moves on from the London quartet's psychedelic debut, embracing deep grooves and bottomless beats.

Slowed right down, Sparks is a RnB tainted journey of jealousy and cheating hearts jumbled with a desperate search for hope over power.

Heavy beats direct the sound to be louder, punching harder to embrace a soulful indie rock chug intricately woven into the riffs. 

Front-man, Joe Murphy, said: "So often you are stuck with a deep rooted fear that the person you're with, doesn't love you any more.

I wanted to describe my feeling of paranoia when I saw the bad signs.

These are the moments that stuck in my head."

Produced by Do Not Entry on 16mm film, their accompanying video takes influence from many gangster films of the era.

To celebrate the release, their Indie Heroes Tour will take them to a number of strictly independent venues around the UK and will also see them interview the music personnel who help keep Britain's independent music scene ticking over.

Be sure to catch them at The Magnet on Friday 3rd June and pick up your copy of Sparks here.
