Home | Little May

little may, home, album cover, for the company, debut album,'Home', the newest sweetest tune from my girl crushes Little May was recently released in anticipation of the girls' first debut album out on October 9. It's another sad one from the band and that's okay - because it's the sad songs that make them authentically relatable. Hannah, Annie and Liz romantically describe real women emotions and epitomize them in angelic harmonies for all us women to envision our own heartaches. Undeniably, they know how to write a good sad song and for that they shall always be Little May. The girls will be on tour this upcoming fall. You can find the tour dates here and don't forget to hit me up if you'll be at the Brooklyn show for some simultaneous girl crushing. Hope you love them as much as I do!

Little May | Northside Festival

The whole audience pretty much knew what she was talking about - especially all the girls. Little May is an indie-folk band from Sydney, Australia formed by Hannah Field, Liz Drummond, and Annie Hamilton. I first saw them live last year during CMJ Festival and now again for Northside Festival in Brooklyn, where I pretty much rekindled my girl crushes. They had me at Liz's finger picking on that gorgeous burgundy acoustic guitar, Annie's silver purple hair, and Hannah's "I know I can't danced but I don't care" moves. I hadn't felt like this about a girl band since Haim. It's refreshing to discover ladies that create sweetly harmonized, vulnerable music and do it with such an impeccably sense of self. Even further, they have that "girl band" look nailed to the core - silver purple hair, noise rings, multiple ear piercings, layered nineties necklaces, skinny black jeans with laced-up black platform booties, teared up tees, and loads of black eyeliner. No wonder I'm crushing over them.
