Little Comets

After an eventful summer full of festivals, recording and heat avoidance, Newcastle quadrilateral Little Comets are set to release their first single on Columbia Records, "Adultery" on 26 October.

Signed in early 2009, the band released tiny debut 'One Night In October' in February, en-gen-de-ring support from the likes of Huw Stephens, Zane Lowe and Sara Cox. Following a nationwide tour in April and a quick-snap performance at the BBC Radio 1 Big Weekend, Robert (vocals), Micky (guitar), Mark (drums) and Matt (bass) trouped off to France to finish recording an actual album.

Watch "Adultery" video:

Creating songs to counter-act the chill factor of their sandblasted, opaque north-eastern rehearsal facilities, their music has a genuine, refreshing degree of energy currently lacking in the British indie scene. But to contrast the band's warm grooves, Robert's lyrics represent the more broken parts of life, exploding scenes from kitchen sinks and other testing relationship dramas.

"Adultery" exemplifies such a juxtaposition, as a winding tale of "subtext and lies" and "sullied back doors" interjects with a rhythmic and melodic optimism mining the same rich seam as acts like Vampire Weekend, Modest Mouse and Black Kids.

Blended with surges of Morricone from all manner of sources (kettles, sofas and peculiar percussion), the self-produced single is neatly tempered by the mixing skills of Rich Costey (Glasvegas / MGMT). The track has already had early radio support from Zane Lowe, Jo Whiley and Fearne Cotton at Radio 1 and Jonathan Ross at Radio 2, and is receiving heavy rotation on MTV2 and NME TV.

Eschewing traditional avenues of playing to an audience, Little Comets have instead preferred the more intimate and spontaneous mixture of bingo halls, lecture theatres, tiny-implausible-venues and trams that themselves and their growing legion of fans frequent.

They will be taking this leaf-defeating live set around the UK and Ireland this early-Autumn as friendly guests of The Twang and

"fun-loving, melody-tastic guitar monkeys." - Huw Stephens
