Biography

Little Girls emerged from Toronto’s post-punk scene as a solo recording project of multi-instrumentalist Josh McIntyre. The songs combine lo-fi post-punk with layers of fuzz to create murky, haunting, and melodic walls of sound.

It all started when Josh, who is a member of the shoe-gaze duo Pirate/Rock, recorded a few songs in his home studio as a side project in early 2009. Seeking the unbiased opinions from friends and musical peers he anonymously posted the music on the internet under the name “Little Girls,” a name he believed least likely to reveal his identity. He also sent a link to influential music blog GorillavsBear, and within days, the music was receiving thousands of plays and Little Girls getting positive attention from blogs such as The Walrus (Philadelphia), No Pain in Pop (U.K.), Exclaim! (Canada) and Pitchfork (Chicago).

Little Girls’ sound is driven by youth and nostalgia, says Josh who has been creating and playing music since his early teens. His influences come from the 80’s no-wave post-punk scene, and the early 80’s golden era of hip-hop. Equally influential are the late hip-hop artist J. Dilla, as well as Can, Joy Division, Wire, and The Clean.

The Tambourine digital EP is being released in spring 2009 on Paper Bag Records, with vinyl releases being handled by Brooklyn labels Mexican Summer and Captured Tracks.

Little Girls backing band consists of Josh on guitar and vocals, Andrew Wilson on guitar, Joseph Roth on bass and Anthony Gerace on drums.
