Though their roots lie in the West Country, from tuning-in to the billowing, classic country-rock sound of the LITTLEMEN’s latest you could quite easily be forgiven for thinking they hailed from the West Coast of the USA.
Extracting the same Californian warmth that radiates from Tom Petty’s immortal recordings, the golden Laurel Canyon harmonies of CSNY and the potent song craft exuded by the Travelling Wilbury’s, the latest single from the Littlemen tips its stetson to the greats of the genre while bringing a refreshing lyrical outlook timely for the 21st century.
Making a firm standpoint against certain media that continue to exploit women purely for their image, the track is an anthem against sexism that chimes with the long-overdue surge in female empowerment.
Written by lead singer and chief songwriter Nick Allen, ‘Front Page News’ was recorded at the infamous Nam Recordings Studio (that has housed KT Tunstall, The Mission, Killing Joke, Royal Blood and many more). Mixed and produced by Keith Holmes, the track is the first to emerge from Littlemen’s forthcoming album: ‘It’s A Beautiful Thing’ (slated for release in 2020).
Littlemen are a five-piece from Wiltshire, UK. Talented to the hilt when it comes to studio ingenuity, sonic expertise and all-round musicianship, it is perhaps no surprise this band sound as accomplished as they do; especially when examining their impressive cumulative CV. In drummer, ROBERT BRIAN they have a Grammy award winning rhythm consultant; a man who’s remarkable career trajectory has included lending his talents to Siouxsie Sioux, Goldfrapp, Miles Kane, Peter Gabriel & Simple Minds, as well as more recently recording and circling the globe with Canadian artist Loreena McKennitt. Then there’s stellar guitar duties from MARK GRIFFIN, a multi-instrumentalist and renowned sound guru. Lead guitar comes courtesy of GUY TOWNLEY, another venerated multi-instrumentalist, as talented as he is popular. Picking up those bass guitar duties is TYLER SPICER, a man who has made his proud reputation on the role he undertakes here. And then, completing the current line-up, is the newly appointed frontman NICK ALLEN, a songwriter already known to many in the music biz who has been applauded and admired as a proven songwriter, manager, studio owner and conceptual thinker.
Although there has been a previous ensemble known as LITTLEMEN who have released various singles, a much-lauded album (“LONG ROAD HOME”), and garnered radio play, Nick now joins this incarnation of the band to bring his own celebrated signature and refusing outlook to proceedings.
Writing, rehearsing and recording constantly, LITTLEMEN are appearing at a venue near you very soon! Watch out for new material in the coming months…
