Pioneering indie outfit Little May made a name of themselves with the release of their debut album For the Company, the Aaron Brooking Dessner (The National) produced record that quickly became triple j’s feature album and FBi’s ‘Album of the Week’.
Today the band continue to keep those waves flowing with the release of the colourful accompanying clip to the single ‘Remind Me’ – a creative collaboration with renowned Sydney visual artist EARS.
With a reputation for spell binding harmonies and intoxicating melodies, ‘Remind Me’ introduced a heavier side of Little May’s atmospheric sound when it first appeared on For The Company – electric guitars replacing acoustic, and heavy percussion, the foundation upon which they built a dense soundscape. Using a combination of milk, water, oil and food dye, as well as hundred of hundreds of hundreds and thousands, EARS’ visual interpretation builds on that sound with a mesmerizing collection of colourful liquid shots perfectly complementing the energy and pacing of the song.
Little May are no strangers to creative collaboration, having previously worked with EARS as part of their unique Art For The Company exhibition, which took place in Sydney in October 2015 in conjunction with the release of For The Company. The exhibition enlisted the help of 11 of their favourite local artists to visually interpret each of the songs on their debut album and featured other renowned local artists like Furry Little Peach and Serpent & the Swan.
Little May have also just announced that they are poised to embark on their largest ever tour on home soil this May, performing headline shows in some of the largest venues they’ve played in major cities and regional centres across the entire country. The tour will follow on from their shows as the main support to Canadian superstars City & Colour on their Australian tour throughout March and April.
And ever the community supporters, Little May are proud to announce the #artforthecompany tour poster competition, inviting designers and visual artists to again collaborate with the band by helping to create the poster artwork for the upcoming tour. The winner will have their poster distributed across the country, as well as a prize pack fit for any aspiring creative. Full details at littlemaymusic.com/artforthecompany
All three projects are just the next steps in what has been a whirlwind two-year period for the group, who have clocked up a staggering 20 million+ Spotify streams, topped the hype machine charts, sold out shows across France, Germany, the US, UK and Australia, and gained airplay across BBC Radio 1, Radio 2, KCRW and triple j.
