little xs for eyes are a harmony-heavy, indie pop outfit, half boy / half girl, tangled guitars and twinned synths. With their forthcoming sophomore album they embark across a soundscape of songwriter Bennie Reilly's quintessential themes: a love of nature and the nature of love. Journeying through forest, jungle and ocean, singing songs of lost summers, loose kisses and longed-for landscapes; venturing everywhere but searching for somewhere else.
Set to a shuffling gallop of a beat, it's full of uplifting dynamics with crashing cymbals and sweeping jangling guitars, airy synths inflecting it all with a sense of retro-futuristic innocence and fantasy >>> The 405 ~ review of Logical Love (première)
a synth-funk pop stomper with love at is core and it has a starry-eyed sensibility to it. There’s a jittery lovebug feel to the track so you’ll probably fall right in love with it yourself. >>> Nialler9 ~ review of Logical Love
a vibrant ode to the magic and mystery of that funny little four-lettered L-word. As a pop, it works splendidly. The instrumentation is busy and attentive … It’s those vocals that steal the show however, weaving a sumptuous pattern that feels wildly free and comfortingly homely. >>> Gold Flake Paint ~ review of Love Gets Lost (UK première)
a playfully engaging progression that has all the catchiness of well-refined pop, yet brims with enthusiastic originality >>> The Music Ninja ~ review of Love Gets Lost (US première)
