London indie-electro outfit Little Grim have released their new single, ‘Infectious’ taken from their upcoming debut EP, out later this year, alongside an encapsulating video animation.
Interlacing singer Joe Murphy’s incandescent vocals with their unique brand of off-kilter electronic beats, ‘Infectious’ takes the band’s concrete rhythmic beats and inspiring indie pop tunes to a much darker place.
Inspired by the stark physicality and emotional confusion of an abusive relationship, Little Grim’s piercing, severe lyricism is the fearless centre-point of this release.
In our interview with Little Grim, the band said: “‘Infectious’ has been our most challenging songs to record because it is so stripped back and minimalistic – a bit of a blank canvas at the start. But working with our producer, Brett Cox, he really took the recording to a new level.
“After we’d recorded the foundation of the song together, we then spent the rest of the session looking around the studio for quirky sounds we could build the atmosphere of the song. If you listen closely, you’ll be able to hear the drip drops of a leaky boiler and the band speaking to each other between takes.
“It’s this special element which has given the song its personality. It’s also the first time we’ve incorporated trumpets and a synthesized banjo!”
