Little Comets got their first record deal in 2009 and their first singles and got a lot of praise right out of the gate.

A few different media outlets in England, notably the BBC, jumped right on the first single "One Night In October" from the 2011 album, "In Search Of Elusive Little Comets."

Their style has a distinctly British feel to it, an indie pop vibe with an addictive, danceable jangle. You could probably draw a comparison to Franz Ferdinand or Walk the Moon and some of the frantic energy of the Arctic Monkeys. You will most likely groove happily as they are a lot of fun.

The songs in this set, all from their 2013 album, "Life Is Elsewhere," cover relationships and death with depth and have the added bonus of a great vocabulary, rhyming, in one song, "Jennifer" with "taciturn." Beautiful three part harmonies float those lyrics, perhaps to an even greater degree on the slower songs.
