About: Little Thief return with the raucous new single ‘Bringing it Back’. The Bristol based three-piece have been making a name for themselves around the UK with their upbeat & highly energetic live show and are heading back out on the road this April with a 19 date tour.
With sounds similar to The Black Keys, The Hives and Queens of The Stone Age, Little Thief released their debut single ‘Bringing it back’ was a track we recorded just outside of Bath with Producer Marc Macnab-Jack. It really came together at the end of a long day in the studio, kind of accidentally. It was a pretty unconventional sound for us at the time, but we were really enjoying this new direction.
What Hidden Herd say: The disparate opener of ‘Bringing It Back’ has a captivating quality, like the start of a story that grabs you from the very first line. With a masterful refrain and an artisanal approach to layering their instruments, Little Thief deliver a refreshing dose of accessible originality that’s hard to ignore.
