Prodigious magic voice from London’Little Drum’ made a poetic song ‘Darling Ocean’ that will be on air in the Formula Indie the November 25th
After spending many years moving in the same musical circles and working together on a variety of projects including Paolo Nutini, Imelda May, Jack Savoretti, George The Poet,Dido, Mel C and Faithless. Matty Benbrook, Pauline Taylor and Donny Little found themselves drawn together by their shared love of blues, folk, soul, the occasional sprinkling of electronica mixed with some good old fashioned songwriting.
Their individual talents come together as Little Drum, whose four track debut EP, Darling Ocean, is a gentle landscape of retro influences and pop sensibilities with themes of hope, love and loss. Inspired by experiences in music, life and a love for London.
From the dreamy first verse of the title track to the languid, California Soul-inspired vocals of the foot stomping “Love Is The Key” to the
stripped and personal musings of “Traffic and the
Rain”, the EP takes you on a journey through the minds
of three musical friends.
