A dark tangle of raw lyrics, honest and haunting melodies and voices upon voices upon voices; Little May represent a new generation of songwriters. Little May’s sound is created by age-old friends Annie Hamilton, Liz Drummond and Hannah Field, who in the last two years have acquired over twenty-three million Spotify streams, two and a half million Soundcloud plays as well as topping the Hype Machine charts three times with their single, Hide.
Plucked as a favourite by BBC Radio 1 goddess, Fearne Cotton, a ‘Next Hype’ slot with Zane Lowe, along with plays across XFM, Amazing Radio and BBC Radio 2 Little May graced the pages of Britain’s The Sunday Times highly tipped as an “act to watch”.
Across the Atlantic Little May performed to sold-out rooms across NYC for CMJ where they were officially selected as one of the “11 Breakout Acts of CMJ”. A show with Cold War Kids at Rough Trade, a nod of approval from NPR heavyweight, Bob Boilen, recommended by the Huffington Post as an ‘Artist You Need to Start Listening To in 2015’ (alongside the likes of Broods, Mark Ronson and Vic Mensa) and a spread in Nylon Magazine saw these young over achievers crack #42 most added to college radio across the country with their debut EP, as well as radioplay on KCRW with their debut album.
Little May have played the Great Escape Festival, a string of sold out shows across the UK, Ireland and France, in addition to Southside and Hurricane Festival in Germany and Best Kept Secret in the Netherlands. Joining arguably one of the strongest festival lineups, Little May performed at Bonnaroo Festival as well as Gentlemen of the Road, where they joined the likes of the Flaming Lips, Alabama Shakes and Mumford & Sons.
On home soil, they have played alongside the likes of Lorde, Haim, and Cloud Control at St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival as well as Splendour In The Grass alongside Asgeir, Foals, Lily Allen and Foster The People ahead of their own second sold out national headline tour.
In 2015 Little May released ‘For the Company’, the debut that landed triple j feature album, FBi’s Album of the Week and an international world tour to support their Aaron Brooking Dessner (The National) produced record.
