Little Comets - '3 Minute Faltz'
The songs continue to come thick and fast from Little Comets, as they tackle numerous social themes in their fourth single of 2019 ‘3 Minute Faltz’.
This band have thrived in the independent scene for many years and with great success, having released a handful of albums and wowed audiences across the country with their unique lyrical content and music that switches style on a dime.
Having been previously associated with Dirty Hit, the band’s last two albums and latest singles have been on their own label, The Smallest Label, and it has arguably produced their best music yet with ‘American Tuna’ being a personal favourite of this year.
Little Comets will be able to showcase their newest single at Tynemouth next week as they support Sam Fender at his sold-out castle show. But it won’t be long before they will be back on the road in their own right, with a nationwide tour at the end of the year which includes a homecoming gig at Newcastle’s Boiler Shop.
Lead vocalist, Rob Coles, recently stated on social media that ‘3 Minute Faltz’ is the “favourite thing” that he has done with the band, and after a couple of spins it isn’t hard to see why. Little Comets take inspiration from Billy Joel’s ‘We Didn’t Start the Fire’, as Coles gives the listener a sobering apocalyptic reminder of the world we live in, while keeping to the sound that has kept Little Comets relevant and fresh for the last decade.
‘3 Minute Faltz’ is available now on all major streaming platforms and Little Comets will support Sam Fender at Tynemouth Castle on July 11th.
