Back in January, we published our list of 50 bands to watch in 2016. Amongst the bands included in the list was emerging Nottingham quartet Little Bribes. This Friday they release their debut EP – ‘Obstacles’. The EP combines post-hardcore riffs with vocalist George Gadd’s tranquil delivery to create an effective set of songs. Today we’re premiering one of those songs.
‘Cartography’ rides on a slow-burning, lucid tone before erupting with radiance in its conclusion. Here’s what George had to say about the track:
“It’s about avoiding asking someone if they need help because you don’t want to make the relationship awkward. I guess self harm but not exclusively in a physical way. I knew what the song was about for a while and I had melodies in my head but I didn’t actually write the lyrics until a week before we recorded it.
We were quite apprehensive about this one going into recording as it wasn’t finished but the end product is one of my favourite songs of all time despite the fact I don’t really play much on it!”
‘Obstacles’ by Little Bribes is released on April 8th.
