Little Comets

Robert, Michael, Mark and Matt first met in a little greengrocers beneath the hue drenched hills of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Sharing a mutual abandon for David Bowie, dalliance and limes they became a bonded musical quadrilateral in 2008, playing a series of gigs in barns, houses, university lecture theatres, prisms and trains. After this things fluctuated wildly between recording an album in a school/farmhouse (produced by Michael, mixed by Rich Costey), playing gigs with people like Hockey, Delphic and Noisettes. Influenced by books as much as music as much as their natural surroundings, Little Comets try to capture bits and pieces from places like Jonathan Safran Foer, Kate Rusby, Joan Miró and attach them to songs. Using bright rhythmic melodies to assuage often dark didactic lyrics, the result is something hopefully as authentic as the intention was originally meant to be. The debut album "In search of the elusive Little Comets" is released in the UK January 2011 and the rest of the world shortly after.
