Little Daylight - New Waves

As female fronted electropop seems to be part of the lifeblood of Breaking More Waves you’d probably have expected us to have already become a little fired up about Little Daylight, especially as they help corroborate our theory that right now is a great time for the L-Club - bands and singers with the initial L.

So today we’re making amends and providing our first coverage of this Brooklyn three piece who consist of Nikki (vocals and synth) Matt (synth, guitar and vocoder) and Eric (bass and synth). Having built up a head of steam on line with a bunch of remixes (Passion Pit, Niki And The Dove, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros and more) and a couple of their own songs, the hooky synth riffing powerblaster of Overdose and the slower dreamy Name In Lights, the band are due to release their debut EP Tunnel Vision on August 6th.

Preceding the EP, comes Little Daylight’s best song yet. Glitter & Gold is like a neon multi-coloured alcopop-giddy version of Chvrches, complete with sugary oh-oh hooks and punchy electronic sounds left right and centre. We’ve already got the likes of Little Boots, Little Dragon and er… Little Mix, now pop’s next little thing that could be big is Little Daylight. They’ll wash the gloom away.
