Little Comets

North East indie-poppers Little Comets, who have been famed for their impromptu gigs in unorthodox venues, such as the Tyne and Wear Metro and even a Marks and Spencer bakery aisle, are back on home turf for the final stop of their 2015 tour at Newcastle’s O2 Academy on March 14.

Hailing from Jarrow and Washington, the band formed in 2008. A year later, they released first single One Night In October, which reached number three in the UK indie charts.

With their blend of tricky percussive rhythms and Afro-beat-tinged guitars, the band have been seen labeled as the British Vampire Weekend.

Inspired by artists ranging from Debussy to Paul Simon and even author Roald Dahl, each Little Comets’ gig is just as diverse as their influences. Many would say this tour is one not to be missed.

The tour accompanies the release of their self-produced third album Hope Is Just A State Of Mind, which is out now. You can buy tickets here.
