Tiny Little Houses have released second single Soon We Won’t Exist, off upcoming EP You Tore Out My Heart. If you’re a sucker for 90’s indie throwback jams, it’s enough to make your heart burst. Occasionally a song comes along and takes you by surprise, slow dancing you to the corners of your memory in a misplaced nostalgia usually reserved for old favourites. This is that rogue suitor.
The nostalgic bent likely comes from drawing on elements of classic 90’s artists such as Modest Mouse, Built to Spill and Neutral Milk Hotel, with enough lyrical weight to sink a ship. Kicking off with line “How weird it is to think in sixty years we won’t exist”, it’s as if Jeff Mangum has crawled out from his eccentric hermitude to pen this line and have it sung by Apples in Stereo. However, the band bring their own flavour with a softer drawl and a modern take on production featuring a perfect balance of electronic and acoustic elements.
It’s a song that demands hitting repeat and foot stomping sing a longs at the traffic lights. The EP is out September 25th and you can check out some tour dates, and first single Easy below. We will be front row and centre at their Bigsound show next week, so stay tuned for the coverage!
