By Little Night Terrors
Thank God for bands like Little Night Terrors. Whilst much of the current U.K music scene are wishing themselves to the warmer climes of California with hazy west coast melodies, there are an increasing number of bands who have cast away the flip flops in favour of the leather jacket, smart haircut and big chorus. Currently about to embark on a mammoth U.K tour that will see them put in the hours at a small venue in pretty much every populated area in the country, they open their assault on the indie charts with the single Pocket Rocket (Where The Light Is).
Opening with a poppy synth driven hook, laid over buzzy guitars and lead singer Andrew Stone's crystal clear voice cutting through the organised mayhem. Little Night Terrors sound comfortingly like the cool band you always wanted to be in, and by the time the chorus kicks in their song-writing abilities confirm their validity. The chest-beating, lung-busting line 'I just want to show you where the liiiiiiiiiiight is' is saturated with festival day joy, and is begging to be the soundtrack to a distant memory of summer drunkenness.
They arrive in Leeds to play at Empire on May 10th mid-way through their tour and they promise to be playing a tight set of indie-pop bangers, ready for their summer onslaught. I for one, won't be missing it.
