Little Children

 

Tuesday 8th January 2013

Little Children is the alias of the Swedish 28 year old Linus Lutti who creates ornamented and mysterious pop music, dark and tender at the same time. The latest songs from his upcoming EP, IN HAU are his most appealing and relevant contribution emerging from the wide pop scene in Sweden, in loveliness on par with the holy bodies made by Loney Dear, and José González. The music from IN HAU shows maturity since the 2010 debut album IN SILENCE, which gathered much praise including many year-end BEST OF lists.

Little Children’s music, reminds one of such diverse artists as Will Oldham, Bon Iver, Nick Drake, and Red House Painters. But there is something else behind his delivery, a je-ne sais-quoi that makes these references nearly irrelevant. This is part of the uniqueness that is so striking about Little Children.
“Hollow” is the first glimpse into Little Children’s new EP IN HAU to be released January 14th on INGRID. Linus gives insight into “Hollow”, “The song was inspired by Mark Hollis’ (Talk Talk) "The gift" and Stockholm’s Tape's "A spire". This song means a lot for the whole project Little Children and for the musicians while recording this song. This song was in fact the first song we really enjoyed recording with its quite "tricky" rhythm”.

IN HAU was produced in Stockholm by Johan Berthling (Tape, FIRE!) which features some extremely talented musicians that play on the record as well as live shows- Andreas Söderström guitarist (plays live w. Anna Ternheim, Taken by Trees, El Perro Del Mar) Mattias Bergqvist drums (live w. First Aid Kit) and Petter Winnberg (live w. Miike Snow, Serenades).  The recordings feature a soulfulness and haunting minimalist sound that is made for repeat listens to fully grasp the emotions entwined in the songs.

Little Children will be touring Scandinavia and the US in Spring of 2013. IN HAU’s January release is just the first taste of music to be released in the next year and years to come.
