Bio

Formed in 2012, Little Desert are growing a loyal following on the fringes of Melbourne’s rock scene. They have been described, quite appropriately, as “heavy, guts grabbing, pulsing, swirling, screaming psych rock ‘n’ roll.”

After a sold out launch of their premiere single ‘Ashes’ (released by local label ‘it’ records, alongside releases from White Hex, Miles Brown, Liam Kenny + The Metronomes http://it-records.com.au), Little Desert are causing quite the stir, amidst a stream of slaughtering live shows, and the release of debut LP Saeva.

'Earth shaking...' - Mess+Noise

'One of the most sorrowfully beautiful voices I’ve heard' - Soundly Sounds

'Like a ferocious squall that has blown in from the Wimmera' - Three Thousand

'A supernatural experience' - Psychedelic Coven/ Triple R

I'm pretty overcome by this dark magic that Little Desert are throwing our way. It's all nervy post-punk energy seen through a Vaseline-smeared lens.
