Isles is the first single from Little Comets since departing ways with their old record label Columbia. Starting out afresh on a indie label called Dirty Hit the band have written new material and are ready to once again take it to their fans.
When it comes to song writing the Newcastle based band try and not only combine a wealth of musical influences but they also draw inspiration from novelists and artists such as Jonathan Safran Foer (Everything Is Illuminated) and Joan Miró as well as their surroundings.
Throughout October Little Comets will be playing headline shows throughout the UK and also playing a selection of tour dates with Darwin Deez.
