Little Guilt evokes a gentle contentment of the meandering through life – reminiscent of springtime bees lazily bumbling through buttercups. Wrapped up in utterly tender lyrics and delightful sonics, their latest single Nowhere is a triumph. 

Nowhere is sonically grounded by an acoustic guitar which seemingly thrums without beginning or end –  like the eternal and ceaselessness of a gentle summer breeze. This single is a bittersweet sigh of youth, encapsulating the feeling of coming to terms with knowing yourself and finding comfort in the mundane of existence. 

“Nowhere is a song about procrastinating. It’s about wanting to do everything else but the thing you’re supposed to be doing. A very relatable topic for most people.” – Little Guilt

Little Guilt are somehow able to bottle both the expansive and comforting feeling of contentment through fuzzed out guitars, airy vocals and shimmering percussion. Recorded at Soak Sounds in North Dandalup, the track was mixed by up-and-coming producer Dylan Keirnanand mastered by Ryan Morey (Arcade Fire, Half Moon Run).

In a similar vein to front runners Middle Kids, Ball Park Music and Stella Donnelly, who also toe the line between indie-dream-pop and gentle rock, Little Guilt add their own highly refined take. They work together as not just a band, but as friends – each playing into their own strengths. This results in a refined and cohesive body of work that has found fans of the American Clairo ecstatic at Australia’s very own answer to the burgeoning need for gentle lo-fi, analogue-washed sounds.

Accompanying this release are two launch shows in their hometown, sharing the stage with local supports. Saturday 17th September they will be playing at Fremantle’s The Aardvark by Sago, Ken Paolo, Space Cadets and King Ibis. In addition to this, Little Guilt will also be playing in Perth at The Sewing Room on Friday 14th October, supported by BushTelly and more.

Ultimately, Little Guilt’s music is empathetic to its core -defined by captivating vocals with a keen eye for emotionally piercing lyrics. They have the rare power to lull you into a trusted sense of safety as the gentle sonic soundscape swaddle you in a cocoon of comfort.
