What we're listening to - Little Comets

Art imitates life, so they say. Thus, it was only a matter of time before the economic crisis worked its way into the creative conscious.

Though they're not the first to take on the subject, four piece "kitchen sink indie" collective Little Comets recently released the sure fire hit that is "Isles", and it paints a pretty bleak picture of contemporary Britain.

It was the Martin Parr-inspired cinematography and Shane Meadows-esque approach of the video which first caught our attention. Though lyrics such as "Economic downturn you can get a job/Apologetic parents you can get a job" add to the lacklustre tone, lead singer Robert Coles' strung out, melodic vocals paired with some appropriately lackadaisical chords results in a surprisingly catchy, listen-able track.
