Little White Things
The two decamped to Dave’s bedroom studio and soon discovered they had similar music upbringings, despite the distance between their hometowns Kalmar and Dublin. Max first picked up a guitar at twelve years old, handed down by his dad – beaten up and with only five strings – while Dave began obsessively playing Nirvana on his father’s guitar aged ten. Uncovering a shared love of The Beatles and admiration for bands like Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Tame Impala, the first few writing sessions would prove an instant catalyst for Little White Things’ folk-tinted psychedelic riffs and gloriously infectious vocal melodies.
In another twist, the band encountered Gilbert Vierich of Crystal Fighters fame and To Kill A King’s Ben Jackson while piecing together the live show at their new rehearsal room. Gilbert and Ben would go on to mix and produce last year’s knockout debut track: the enchanting, uplifting ‘Step Back’. Piquing the interest of tastemaker blogs like Pigeons and Planes, as well as Radio 1’s Annie Mac, the track confirmed Little White Things’ buzz band status and racked up over almost half a million plays in the process. Having spent much of 2016 plotting their next move, Little White Things are ready to return this week with ‘Corner Of’.
Powered by Dave’s catchy pop choruses, ‘Corner Of’ is the perfect reintroduction to Little White Things’ sparkling aesthetics, and only further asserts the ambitions they laid out at that first fateful meeting: to bring the party, encourage mass singalongs and eventually conquer stadiums. Enjoy the ride.
