Bio

Music that has a piercing, burrowing effect on us tends be emotionally striking.
Songs born of candour, vulnurability and authenticity, makes a for a
musical experience which can be both vivid and recognizable. It’s
simple: we all strive for harmony and union during our lives, but time
after time we end up in emotional disconnect.
And in 2015, no one orchestrates the search for connection better than Little Children from Stockholm, Sweden.


Little Children, a loose collective based around the minor tuned and
emotionally charged songwriting of Linus Lutti, is a deeply personal
expression catalyzed through the musical collaboration with
multi-instrumentalists Andreas Söderström and Mathias Bergkvist. The
group was born from the ashes of defunct duo Idiot kid (which Lutti
shared with Swendie queen Min Stora Sorg) as a way for Lutti – a former
therapist - to express all the sentimentality and recluse that permeates
his own identity.

Little Children’s musical language obviously
builds on love of music with intense emotional charge, but their
expression is entirely their own. Their soundscapes are sometimes
desolate and sparce, sometimes impalpable and intangible as air; other
moments are hazy with an occasional burst of force of conviction. You
want references? Try some Nick Drake and Bon Iver, pour one part
Midlake, add the dazed desert dusk anthems of The War On Drugs, Dandy
Warhols or Kurt Vile, and you’re still only half way there. Lutti’s
personal songwriting, sense of melody and unparalleled voice has a rare
cinematic quality that earned the band soundtrack contributions to
international TV-series such as Grey’s Anatomy, Bones, Arrow och The
Originals.

Travelling Through Darkness, Little Children’s
glorious breakout EP, builds on the majesty and melancholy of the band’s
musical history, and tells of the leaving and of the longing that
connects as much with Smalltown, Sweden as the tribulations of complex
affection. Travelling Through Darkness is a cathartic collection of
songs which contrasts perfect musical harmony and minor key melodies
with stories of doubt, defiance and imperfect relations. Crisp guitars
are adorned with ethereal strings and a tapestry of percussion details,
making the EP a masterwork of ethereal but jagged beauty. The title
track is the perfect example: a duet with legendary Swedish songstress
Titiyo which blends intertwined vocals with irrisitable melodies to create a strange sensation of a near-life experience
