They’ve transformed our perception of folk, delivering hauntingly beautiful harmonies that have teetered on the very precipice of otherworldly darkness. Sydney-based three piece, Little May, with only two tracks under their collective belts, have acquired almost half a million Soundcloud plays, added to high rotation on Triple J, topped the Hype Machine chart twice with their sophomore single, Hide, as well as the AirIT charts for community radio.
Predicted as one of Australia’s hottest break out acts of 2014, Little May are primed to impress with their forthcoming highly anticipated debut EP due out later this year. The self-taught trio consisting of Hannah Field, Liz Drummond and Annie Hamilton, were picked up by FBi Radio early on and awarded a coveted spot as their Unsigned Artist of the Week in mid-2013.
Their first single Boardwalks won hearts instantly, added to community radio around the country. Their second single, Hide grew organically, in a worldwide flurry, which saw the track top Hype Machine twice, with no international PR support. The single has now had over half a million soundcloud plays.
Quickly topping the AirIT charts, the track was added to Triple J, followed by their winning the Triple J Unearthed slot, performing alongside the likes of Lorde Haim, and Cloud Control at the Sydney leg of Laneway Festival. The ladies were also invited to support, Mikhael Paskalev on his recent East Coast tour and also being asked to play with Big Scary. They also played at their second consecutive Secret Garden Festival and were recently announced on this years’ Splendour In The Grass lineup.
Little May also received a nomination for ‘Next Big Thing’ in FBi Radio’s SMAC awards this year, nominated alongside eventual winner Elizabeth Rose & Dustin Tebbutt.
Influenced by the likes of Local Natives and The National, the trio are well versed in capturing their audience with their unique brand of what has been aptly coined ‘ghost folk’.
