Come On Live Long’s Mender EP was impressive in its sure identity in for a second EP release. On the evidence of ‘Little Ones’ that identity has got a lot more obvious for the first album, and the band have got better on the back of some great live gigs. The song is obviously at a higher level of the production chain (recorded by Gavin Glass and produced/mixed by Conor Gaffney of Nouveaunoise) and really sounds very little like the older material. The first thing apparent are Louise Gaffney’s lush tones leading the track with a direct vocal over James Blake-style piano chords until Robert Ardiff takes over while the band amp up the song with a big sweeping crescendo.
‘Little Ones’ is taken from the band’s debut album Everything Fall out in Spring but the song will be available to buy from next Monday.
