With a forthcoming sophomore album in the works, The Little Lord Street Band have come out with ‘High Beams’, a toe-tapping indie-imbued piece that teases the project to come.
Pilerats says, “they're amongst WA's formidable bands and are beginning to turn heads interstate too”, which is a claim that doesn’t go unfounded for the band. TLLSB have collected accolades as they’ve travelled through Australia together for a significant amount of time - crowned Best Country Act for three years in a row at the West Australian Music Industry Awards and winning WAM Song of the Year award (Country) for their single ‘Maybe I’m Just In Love’. Playing for a strong eight years, they’ve toured and played hundreds of stages together including Bigsound (QLD), Out On The Weekend (VIC), St Kilda Festival (VIC), Waverock Weekender, In The Pines, Fairbridge and so many more!
Consolidating all of their experiences and musical prowess, ‘High Beams’ speaks to all the bands on the road that may have had a few close calls themselves. Band member Jimmy Rogers expands on this; “‘High Beams’ is about a near-death experience that one assumes when confronted by another driver not turning their high beam lights off when driving at night on country roads, and the thoughts that would go through one’s head when faced by a blinding oncoming light.”
Despite the message on the song, the band combine their powers to create a feel good country-folk track that keeps your head bopping. Bright electric guitar meets the country twang on the acoustic that creates moody layers on top of which Natasha Shanks’ distinct vocals travel. The build to the chorus is gentle, but once it hits you can guarantee you will be moving along to the beat.
As well as releasing their new single, The Little Lord Street Band are also going on tour in WA, playing in select venues throughout the state. They're about to kick off the December leg, for more information, make sure to click here.
