I still remember discovering The Little Ones on blogs like Gorilla Vs. Bear back in 2006, and absolutely adoring them. Young discoveries like them were entirely new to my 15-year-old self, and it was the sort of thing that got me to start a blog of my own. So I definitely owe a bit of gratitude to the band.
It’s been four (!) years since their debut album, and just when I was worried all was lost with the L.A. band, they surprised me with news of a new album + song. The album is called The Dawn Sang Along and the first track we get is called “Argonauts.”
The band haven’t changed much at all, and that’s a good thing. They still sound as joyful and youthful as they did all those years ago. Chopped up vocals and a bouncy rhythm leave them sounding confidently catchy. Go vote, then destress a bit by hitting play.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy.
