How Much For the Little Girls?

Toronto-based Little Girls has just released their new EP, Tambourine with Paper Bag Digital earlier this week and we're here to celebrate.

This band of Little Girls emerged from Toronto's post-punk scene as a solo recording project of multi-instrumentalist Josh McIntyre. Little Girls' sound is driven by 'youth and nostalgia', says Josh who has been creating and playing music since his early teens. His influences come from the 80's no-wave post-punk scene, and the early 80's golden era of hip-hop. Equally influential are the late hip-hop artist J. Dilla, as well as Can, Joy Division, Wire, and The Clean.

The songs combine lo-fi distorted surf rock with layers of fuzz to create murky, haunting, and melodic walls of sound.

Little Girls' band consists of Josh on guitar and vocals, Andrew Wilson on guitar, Joseph Roth on bass and Anthony Gerace on drums. Little Girls will release two more EPs before the end of this year on various labels and will be touring throughout the summer.
