We always find a bit of Sauce goes down a treat here at Little Indie, and this latest single, released last week, doesn't disappoint.
Produced by Alex Quin at Liverpool's Parr Street Studios,
'What Feels Better (Than You & I)?’ is the Manchester four's artful blend of psychedelia, blues and indie and comes after their summer outing with 'Love Shocks'.
'What Feels Better...' opens on fiery guitar distortion and a flurry of catchy drums, before Dean Molyneux - taking lead vocal duties from Henry Lewis - comes in to blow you away.
We hope to see this band break in 2018.

Directed by Tarik Karam, Californian three-piece Lo Moon share the video to ‘Thorns’.
The melancholy synth number utilises interpretive choreography and split screens to, as Karam explains, "[take] an entire relationship – from its birth – and compressing it to the length of a 4 minute song. The song has this incredible ability to be both full of love and desire but also sad and mournful. I felt that using split screens to allow us to see multiple stages of a relationship would convey a similar powerful juxtaposition.”
Lo Moon are in the UK next month to play The Lexington, London on December 4, and are currently opening for London Grammar around Europe.

London rockers Climb The Attic unveiled their single 'Seen It All' back in the summer through Curious Fox Records, but as a final goodbye to 2017, they are dropping its video partner, which Little Indie is pleased to premiere here.
Filmed at a derelict police station which the band currently act as guardians for and use as a base and rehearsal studio, and directed by Giovanni Di Giulio, vocalist Hugh Wheatley describes the meaning behind the song:
"After a hostile relationship it leaves you bruised and cautious, so when you meet someone new you stubbornly assume its gonna be the same disaster as previous, feels like you've 'seen it all' before but yet you cant help yourself getting closer to this new person."
The band sat they have tried to utilise this concept in the video where Hugh feels a struggle with commitment/addiction therefore attends a group counselling meeting for some guidance on how to escape his own head.
"We have used the band as his mental safe point which he tries to gain access to throughout the video, only finds nothing but a metaphoric tape."
Intriguing. Watch below. And if you want more, Climb The Attic play London's Waiting Room tonight.

After last month revealing new track 'Lord', Young Fathers have shared the video to the song.
Directed by Rianne White, Young Fathers’ Alloysious Massaquoi says of the visuals:
“For me, the video stemmed from… Like how do you describe an emotion, clearly and precisely when you’re completely immersed in it all? An act of internal withdrawal from the outside world, when all you need from the outside world is for someone, anyone, to show they care.”
