Introducing: Little Racer
January 2nd, 2012 • Introducing
Avid followers of our live nights are likely to be familiar with Brooklyn’s Little Racer already. The three piece were in London last month to promote their debut UK 7″ (“Split For The Coast”) released by Young & Lost Club, and we had the pleasure of hosting two shows for them – one at The Social on 28 November with The Static Jacks (which was the band’s debut UK performance), and one at The Macbeth a week or so later with Channel Cairo.
Their breezy, lo-fi surf pop has drawn comparisons to The Beach Boys, The Drums, Vampire Weekend and early Strokes, and none of these are too far of the mark. This is indie rock in its purest form that’s very much a product of it’s NYC surroundings, and is also the type of noise made to be heard solely on vinyl format.
The buzz they created whilst in town wasn’t insignificant, with some healthy blog coverage and well received shows, which from our experience, were tight, energetic and thoroughly entertaining.
It’ll be interesting to see where they go over the course of 2012. Check out the aforementioned single below, and download their rather nifty self-titled track below that.
