"Like A Shot Through The Veil of Boredom"

Like a shot through the veil of boredom, ignominy and mediocrity are Little Room; a London based four piece outfit which transcends any such genre tag and/or likeness to popular mainstream artists. Little Room are all about sensitivity and gusto. Delicate and barbaric. Their sound is huge and they are a larger than life example of music in pure art form. Forget any such ‘art rock’ tags that have previously been issued in the past; Little Room adapt and control the scene with a commanding authority.

Little Room emerged from the disillusioned ashes of former projects to create comfort within vulnerability suited to their well defined sound. It’s dark and subtle enough for it not to be whiny, yet powerful enough to rise above the background music it could easily have turned into by grasping our attention with it’s obvious credibility. A truly inspiring band whose sound has been attempted by hundreds of musicians who have all fell just short of the line. - Darren Kirby


"Little Room for Mediocrity"

Anyone with a penchant for dark, electronic and experimental music should take time to investigate ‘Little Room’. The modern music scene may have plenty to offer us in the way of diversity, but few bands actually emerge with a truly ‘polished’ sound. However, ‘Little Room’ manage to do exactly this. The demise of ‘Joy Division’ left a large vacuum in the genre of alternative rock which has never been properly filled. Could a London-based outfit like ‘Little Room’ make their mark where other groups have so often failed? ‘Little Room’ first came into being in South London during the early part of 2009. They are still based in the capital and have played at a large number of venues in the area, including Brixton Jamm, Hoxton Underbelly, 229 and Peter Parker’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Club.

The songs of ‘Little Room’ have a wide variety of influences; Punk, Acoustic, Breakbeat, Electronica, Drum and Bass and Indie Pop (to name but a few). This may sound a little unusual and perhaps even confusing, but the results are incredibly focused. The voice of Simon Howlett is clear and commanding, whilst the instrumentation of the band is both tight and professional. The singer cites his favourite bands as Radiohead, Interpol and Joy Division. ‘I really want to make experimental music which appeals to a mainstream audience’ explains Simon Howlett. That is quite a tough challenge for a young singer to set himself, but when listening to the band’s music it seems totally plausible. ‘Little Room’ may not make the type of music you would tap you foot along to on the radio, but you can easily imagine them getting plenty of airplay in the not-too-distant future. ‘Little Room’ have already recorded an excellent four track demo at Atomic Studios (owned by The Animal Farm record company) and ‘Breaking Gnosis’ is available for download on iTunes. The songs of ‘Little Room’ have gained quite a lot of attention from record labels and they have already been offered a deal which has been put on hold until early 2011. ‘Little Room’ consists of; Simon Howlett - Vocals/Guitar, Mark Fennell – Bass, Morgan Ellis – Guitar, and Lee Verralls -Drums.
