The Bluesy Garage Rock outfit LITTLE BROTHER ELI from Oxford UK produce some pretty powerful vocals, grumbles of guitars and some mettlesome solos…
Yet their sounds are far from ‘conventional’…
You can pre-order their Album “COLD TALES” and see them play at this year’s Great Escape in Brighton.
We’ve been checking out their new track “Hanging” taken from the debut album —
This is a lonesome, hardship blues number, filled with bottomland tribulation and Delta-influenced bottleneck glissading … as well as a whole load of disconsolate yet tuneful howlin’.
The guitar is vibrant and fruity and the whole thing opens out like a Tallahatchie hayfield.
This is like a piece written by Kill It Kid yet vocalised by Little Walter.
In other words, vintage blues taken to a supreme new level.
