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.
