about

‘Little Buildings’ is the second release from their upcoming album 'Ouseburn', which explores the post-industrial redevelopment of the North-East of England. The title is taken from a local music venue which the band also uses as a practice space. The song describes how the shameless profit motivated construction projects slowly destroy the fringe arts spaces and creative/community hubs, taking away the vibrant and colourful life inside them.

"On Little Buildings they effortlessly add a very anthemic feel to their sound – thanks in part to the amazing vocal range of Bea Garcia – whilst still keeping true to the addictive synthrock sounds of their previous releases" – Electronic North, UK

"A stylish and intense effort, 'Little Buildings' gives us a glimpse of a band that is full of energy, emotion, and talent" – 24ourmusic, Canada

"The track seems to constantly build from dramatic verses into massive choruses. There’s a dark, gritty tone to the track, which somehow compliments the euphoric sound perfectly" – Born Music, UK

"‘Little Buildings’ is a soaring synth-pop track – although using the term synth-pop to describe something quite as epic as this seems wrong to be honest. It’s, how shall I put this, more epic than that term might describe. This is huge." – Local Sound Focus, UK

Track Name: Little Buildings (Single version)
In the end we´ll see these Little Buildings collapse without a sound,
taking all the colour into the canal... and there´ll be nothing left.

Come and see them ripping out its heart (x2)

What comes next, more glass windowed homes
to better watch the artists go
taking all the colour away from city walls and ripping out its heart

Rush to see, to see it fall apart (x2)

Come and see them ripping out its heart
Rush to see, to see it fall apart
