Oh what I'd give for silence
A day through the eyes of a London teen fighting back against a cheating partner and predatory commuter aggression, making for an uneasy watch but one with a particularly empowering message.
Following a successful string of single releases, South London indie-pop duo Little Grim has returned with ‘Silence’, an unforgettable track with penetrating lyricism and nfectious, floor-filling beats. This powerful video directed by David Ranson paints a dark but beautiful image of city life and personal struggle.
‘Silence’ is a hazy slice of smooth dream-pop about the pressures of modern life, Joe Murphey tells us “We are so proud to release this film which we feel encapsulates so much of the songs meaning in such a powerful way. It's an overwhelming strain when you're feeling attacked by constant pressure and noises inside your own mind. It can make you feel like the loneliest person in the world, especially living in a city. To anyone who feels this way, you're not alone.”
Collaborating in the studio with producer, Brett Cox (Jack Garratt, Tusks, Vök), the band have pushed their production into a surprising new territory that takes the nostalgic vintage swagger of their first records and laces it with electronic beats and relentless bass lines.
Little Grim came together after singer Joe Murphy and guitarist Jeremy Barclay met in a secondary school jazz band, and discovered a shared love for making quirky, off-the-wall indie tunes. Since then, a run of single releases since 2014 has seen them hone their songwriting into the mature form it takes today. They’ve shared stages with the likes of Husky Loops and Rat Boy, and with an upcoming EP, as well as regular live music and club nights they promote themselves in Peckham, they are ready to make their unique mark on the alternative indie landscape.
