San Francisco band Little Person were formed by twin brothers Nicky and Max Weinbach, both of whom has previously worked in musical theatre, but a shared love of classic '60s pop music made them swap that branch of performing arts for one that involved electric guitars and the clubs of their home city. Now a quartet thanks to the addition of bassist Waide Hicks and drummer Junki Kawasaki, they released their debut EP late last year. New single 'Living In A Silhouette City' is the latest track taken from the self-titled release.
There is a certain traditionalism to what they do that does come from '60s pop music, but the end product is perhaps closer to the indie guitar-pop that took off a couple of decades later. They avoid any stereotypes such as jangle-pop or lo-fi production, instead offering a clean and clear sound that doesn't try too hard to be cool. The songwriting takes a conventional formula, but adds their own quirks, resulting in a lively, slightly kooky track. Along with previous (and maybe even better) EP cut 'Way Ahead Of The Apple', this track is available for free to anyone who gives them a like on Facebook.
