DITTIES FROM DOWN UNDER: Little Red
The first thought that comes to mind when thinking about Little Red is a fresh, modern take of a ’60s style-pop band. Light, fun, and refreshing, leaving all the heavy complications for the “blues” to take care of. When I first heard their debut single, “Waiting,” I certainly pricked my ears up. I was instantly transported to an underground bar in London where all the Beatniks hung to listen to the risquÃ© rock ‘n roll. Clean, simple, no mess beat. Turn up the cute, fresh, clean, fun, and innocence of this vocal group, much like the Beach Boys/The Monkey’s/Gidget meet Vampire Weekend, at the Hamptons. This 5-piece perform a fun, tight, great live show. The formula is simple: Tom takes the bass note, Quang the baritone, Dominic the lead, and Adrian the tenor part, while Taka provides the beat.
Australian’s voted their song, “Rock It” as number 2 in our latest Triple J Hottest 100 poll, an extremely high accolade in this country, so the prospect of wide appeal is very real.
Check them out at the SXSW festival 3/16 @ Bat Bar, 3/18 @ Uncorked, and 3/19 @ Maggie Mae’s.
