UN FAIRE-PART DE SINGLE: LITTLE
AN ANNOUNCEMENT OF THIS MUSICAL BIRTH – SEPTEMBER 20TH, 2019
DIRECTED BY RICHARD EDKINS (ROZI PLAIN, SPECTRES, ICHI)
“Sounds like Mercury Rev fighting Neil Young.” Liquid Library.
“[Little] is a gorgeous song, bringing to mind somebody you are truly fond of.” Sam Bonham, BBC Introducing the West.
“Bold basslines and screeching synths, all accumulating to create the perfect recipe for an atmospheric and mystical show. The combination of foot stepper rhythm along with haunting vocals was the perfect blend of serenity and insanity.” Tap The Feed.
Little is the last offering from High Climbers’ recent debut album Faire-Part, and perhaps their most urgent to date. A song close to their hearts, it was written about the birth of Bouthera’s first child, on an old casio organ with the motorik drum beat to match. Pure and innocent in spirit, it captures the essence of new life from a playful and experimental lens – a characteristic that runs through the entire sonic lineage of the group. It was this very song that won over Susie Barr and Rob Burgess (the band’s rhythm section), and has since resulted in this melodically enriching full-band edition.
Featured on Little Dose of Indie – “‘Little’ feels nostalgic of warm summer days, bringing in soft basslines and gentle guitar notes, and winding them through subtle drum beats and dreamy vocals.“
