Victoria Abraham defines one up and coming artist each week so you can impress your friends with your musical brilliance. This week, she tackles Little Comets, an indie rock trio from Jarrow and Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
Dig out your best hipster shoes and adjust your black-rimmed fake glasses, because Little Comets are the latest British indie rock group to make sweet love to your ears. With a slew of tours around the UK and a pending second album, they are definitely worth a listen.
Origins: Jarrow and Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England
Band members: Robert Coles (lead vocals, guitar), Michael Coles (lead guitar, backing vocals), Matthew Hall (bass, backing vocals). But it’s also all about nicknames with this band, Michael is Mickey and Matt is “the cat.”
Known for: They’ve been described as playing “kitchen sink indie,” whatever that means. But we love their clever lyrics, Robert’s unique voice, and the overall guitar-heavy sound.
Used in a sentence: “Even when they’re singing about arguments and worries, the Little Comets make you want to dance.”
