Little Strange’s latest single, ‘Hard Days Hard Times’, is a thunderous declaration of intent from the Manchester-based quartet. Following the success of their self-produced track, ‘I Get By’, the band wastes no time in unleashing another sonic onslaught.

Crafted by songwriter and guitarist Olly Davis, the song is an instant earworm that seamlessly combines fuzz-tinged guitar lines with Jamie Thompson’s overdriven vocal tones. The rhythmic powerhouse of Charlie Harris and Jack Clynes propels the track forward, creating a heady cocktail that feels like the perfect soundtrack for the listener’s next main character moment.

The band’s authenticity shines through, as they eschew fads and viral trends in favour of a timeless sound that resonates across age and background. Describing their music as “alt-rock for all”, Little Strange’s inclusivity is evident in the warmth generated by their live performances. Independent and unapologetically doing it for themselves, the band embraces a never-say-die attitude that has endeared them to fans.

In a statement about the single, Jamie Thompson shares that ‘Hard Days Hard Times’ is more than just music; it’s an exploration of self-doubt and being trapped in one’s own head. The introspective lyricism adds depth to the band’s powerful sound, making it their most potent release to date.

Little Strange’s journey from the shadows has been nothing short of remarkable. After a two-year hiatus, they’ve not only returned but have quickly made up for lost time, earning a reputation for their emphatic live performances. With a release schedule mapped out until mid-2024, ‘Hard Days Hard Times’ is a captivating glimpse into the band’s evolution and a testament to their commitment to the indie music scene. Buckle up; Little Strange is a force to be reckoned with.
