Little Destroyer return in anthemic, electro-rock style with new single 'love & anarchy'
Rising Alt Rockers Little Destroyer were building a solid following prior to lockdown thanks to their densely layered electro-influenced sound that always packs a punch. The band then went a little quiet over the last two years but they have now returned in emphatic form with two new singles in 2022. 'hitman' was the perfect reintroduction to their sound; gritty, in-your-face and full of swagger hit is a short and sharp slap around the face that will make you stand up and pay attention. The thick instrumental layers and cool female vocal attack will remind our UK fans of Black Honey.
'Love and Anarchy' then followed last month and demonstrated more of their atmospheric range. The cluttered electro opening sounds like it is about to enter a hypnotic Post-Punk spiral like the latest Fontaines D.C album's title track 'Skinny Fia'. However, the atmosphere shifts into a confident Rock swell before soaring into an empowering chorus that has the otherworldly euphoria of Wolf Alice. Although they are still an upcoming band, these guys don't have much more improvement to make before they are ready for that killer debut album and we can't wait for it!
