South London outfit Little Grim returns with an unforgettable new single ‘Silence’.

Following a successful string of releases, the indie-pop duo’s new single fuses penetrating lyricism and psychedelic riffs with infectious, floor-filling beats. The band have pushed their production into a surprising new territory that takes the nostalgic vintage swagger of their earlier records and laces it with electronic beats and relentless basslines.

The song is accompanied by a powerful new video directed by David Ranson, which paints a dark but beautiful image of city life and personal struggle. It follows an intoxicating experience of a London teen fighting back against a cheating partner and predatory commuter aggression, making for an at times uneasy watch, but one with a particularly empowering message.

‘Silence’ is a hazy slice of smooth dream-pop about the pressures of modern life, Joe Murphy (lead singer) explains: “We are proud to release this film, as we feel it encapsulates so much of the song’s meaning in a powerful way.

“It’s an overwhelming strain when you’re feeling attacked by constant pressure and the noises inside your own mind; it can make you feel like the loneliest person in the world, especially living in a city. To anyone who feels this way, you’re not alone.”
