Bio

Brisbane atmospheric indie-pop band Little Scout are back in the studio writing and recording their second album. The band rounded off an incredible 18 months by supporting First Aid Kit (SWE) and Belle and Sebastian (UK) in Brisbane. Consistently in demand, the four-piece played alongside the likes of The New Pornographers (CAN), Camera Obscura (UK), Big Scary, Sally Seltmann andClare Bowditch, while recording their debut album with Sydney wunderkindJonathan Boulet in his garage in Sydney. Produced by Scott Bromiley of The John Steel Singers, Little Scout released Take Your Light in August of 2011 and generated critical acclaim from local media. First single We Are Walking Out received play on community radio stations and national youth broadcaster triple j, and prompted an east-coast tour with Sydney band Parades. Prior to the release of Little Scout’s debut album, the band independently released two EPs, The Dead Loss EP (2008) and Different in the Distance (2009). The band was named as one of triple j’s ‘Next Crop’ artists in late-2008, and made the state finals of MTV’s Kickstart competition in the same year. In 2009 Little Scout toured the east coast with Belles Will Ring and Philadelphia Grand Jury, and shortly after they jumped on board a regional Queensland tour with Josh Pyke. The band has also played alongside Jens Lekman (SWE), Holly Throsby, The Middle East, The John Steel Singers and Cloud Control.

I really like a lot of things about this song. It starts modestly, but the Melissa's voice hooks you in. It kinda builds, then drifts away, then builds again. But never crashes in which you kind of expect. Unpredictable is a good word for this song.

Love Mel's voice. Dreamy, frail, and strong all at once.
