Little Comets - One Night in October

Why do we like this?

Ah! Finally a band to put a bit of step into these cold gray winter days: I bring you Little Comets, straight out of Newcastle.  With their glorious yelps, full band, and indie rock sound, I feel myself washing away the days of sad quiet folk and dancing my way into new love for England's answer to Vampire Weekend. However, unlike Vampire's hit-or-miss singles, I'm finding myself amused by all of Little Comet's songs.  There is range in style, but fluidity

to their sound. At times, through the northern accents, I even hear a little Kings of Leon twang.

Little Comet's songs are layered indie rock anthems with ska-ish beats driving many of the songs.  In 2009, the band signed with Columbia Records, which means it's only a matter of time before these guys really make it big. The single we're spotlighting here is a great introduction to get you hooked.

The lyrics each tell mini stories, sometimes of difficult times, always with an upbeat tune.  "One Night in October" is already looping in my head".

Oh intensive care

Intensively she's aware

That I, I miss the heat

Solace and sway of the sheets

Oh, this dashboard's so hard

Can't cushion the beats of my heart

Their newest single, "Adultery" is worth tuning into too. Maybe it's the accents that do it to me every time, but I'll never escape my love of great cheeky Brit-rock power tunes.
