Event Info

The unlikely combination of a Cambridge graduate, particle physicist and a local sailor make up the three legged didactic table that is Little Comets, proud descendants of the hue drenched hills of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, a northern city in the British Isles. Bearing a name picked at random from a list of others; Robert, Michael and Matthew create a lilting combination of deft percussive nuance and melodic shimmer, shrouded in a veil of abstract lyrics.

Starting out as an antidote to the problem of being unable to adequately express themselves in conversation, the group formed when brothers Robert and Michael chanced upon Matthew in the corner of a crowded room. Quickly eschewing the established methods of relentless gigging and label baiting, Little Comets chose instead to perform in the furtive surroundings of front rooms, trains, trams and university lecture halls, creating small pockets of rapt listeners who would return to see the band in more established concert venues.

First single, One Night In October, came out in early 2010, bolstered by support from BBC Radio 1, and self-produced debut album, In Search of Elusive Little Comets, followed in February of 2011 fizzling with an air of ease and nonchalance. Venturing briefly into the States for SXSW, the band spent much of the following year touring before heading back to begin the process of making a second album.

Released during 2012 on UK label Dirty Hit, home of such luminaries as Benjamin Francis Leftwich and The 1975, Life is Elsewhere staunchly demonstrates the ability of Little Comets to blend vernacular and content - pairing propulsive beats with layered melodies in the vein of a more sedate Talking Heads, Fleetwood Mac or less conspicuous Vampire Weekend.
