Little Comets

Little Comets Biography

Robert, Michael, and Matt first met in a little greengrocers beneath the hue drenched hills of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Sharing a mutual abandon for David Bowie, dalliance and limes they became a bonded musical quadrilateral in 2008, playing a series of gigs in barns, houses, university lecture theatres, prisms and trains.

Influenced by books as much as music as much as their natural surroundings, Little Comets try to capture bits and pieces from places like Jonathan Safran Foer, Kate Rusby, Joan Miró and attach them to songs. Using bright rhythmic melodies to assuage often dark didactic lyrics, the result is something hopefully as authentic as the intention was originally meant to be.
