Melbourne band Little Red have released the first single from their new album Rock it. To celebrate they have announced a one off show at the Oxford Art Factory in July.
From the Press release:
Melbourne melodicists Little Red have delivered the first single, ‘Rock It’, from their highly anticipated second album and the response has been overwhelming. Premiered on Triple J’s breakfast show at the end of last week, the song has been on repeat rotation over recent days and has instantly received an official rotation add from the station. Taken from the as-yet-untitled sophomore album (due out this September on Liberation Records), the song marks a cleaner, more hi-fi sound that was brought to life in collaboration with producer Scott Horscroft (The Temper Trap, The Presets, Silverchair). ‘Rock It’ is party music of the best kind: warm, infectious, straightforward and unadorned. It is the sound of a band moving even further toward a sound entirely their own, blurring their influences as they do the decades of classic pop they draw from.
Meanwhile, the band has announced a return to the live arena with a series of single launches around the country throughout July that culminates with a prime slot at the massive Splendour in the Grass festival. The lads have been one of the country’s most loved live acts ever since their emergence a few years back, and it is standard practice that these shows will be a non-stop party of energy, huge melodies and good times. Fans will also get to hear the band premiering a selection of brilliant new songs from the forthcoming album. Tickets are sure to go quickly, so don’t hesitate.
The band’s next immediate step is London as the band jet off this to the UK this weekend to perform at next week’s Musexpo conference in London, as well as performing additional showcases over the following week. Their debut Listen to Little Red, a Top30 hit at home, also received critical acclaim in the UK and anticipation is certainly high for these return shows.
The new single ‘Rock It’ is OUT NOW on iTunes via Liberation Music.
