TUNE Little Comets - Common Things
Little Comets are pleased to announce the first track from upcoming album, Worhead (out March 10th 2017). Priding themselves on their ultra DIY ethic, the band like to operate on an entirely uncensored level and their latest offering, ‘Common Things’ is no exception.
Offering breezy commentary on the beauty that lies within the oft-mundanity of a comfortable relationship, the song explores the enjoyment of ‘common things’ in the situation - even if those common things include such sensory, uncompromising delights as being regularly re-contaminated by cold sores, as is the case presented here…The concept is subverted in the upcoming video with visceral visuals presented in ordinary scenarios, a raw chicken being taken for a walk in the countryside, a spot of knitting with cured meats and a woman’s hands replaced with crunchy fishfinger morsels…
Featuring sunny, syncopated beats, the song opens up into a warm, uplifting wash of golden synth before retreating back to angularity with afro-pop flashes and vocal bursts. The buoyant percussion part was fashioned after vocalist, Rob Coles played lead guitarist, Mickey Coles a combination of a djembe, a bottle, a bike pump and a bit snapped off an old snare drum.
