Liverpool’s fast-rising rock ‘n’ rollers Little Triggers are back with a new single in the shape of ‘Loaded Gun’, the title track of the LP.

Following the band’s debut album release, the single showcases a bluesier, more subtle side to Little Triggers – but still provides a meaty, riffed-out midsection and guitar solos galore.

“Loaded Gun is about falling for someone you know you shouldn’t – that femme fatale you know is going to burn you out,” explains frontman Tom Hamilton. “The protagonist in the song claims to be advising the next sucker not to fall in love, but it’s clear he’s done so already and it’s too late for him.”

Like all the best rock n’ roll gangs, Little Triggers have a shared vision of restoring the rawness of guitar music and festival-ready choruses to the top of the tree and come armed with the looks, charm and ear for a hook to do it. Loaded Gun is the follow up to single ‘Giving Me Up’ released back in April which saw them land on our ‘The Indie Playlist’ as well as Planet Rock Radio and BBC Introducing.

With an Iggy Pop support slot last year as well as a growing fanbase from a tour of France and shows in the UK this year, the rock ‘n’ roll flame is burning brightly with Little Triggers. Check out the music video below.
