Little Brother Eli
"Think Jack White or Black Keys. A band that knows who they are, where they want to go. Growling guitars and catchy hooks. Eyes on this band… they’re definitely ones to watch! - SUBBA-CULTCHA"
"...one of the hottest new bands in Oxfordshire - INVISIBLE FILTER"
“These boys have got the blues, and dirt under their fingernails, like White Denim living in a Mississippi shack, hosting whisky parties for Jack White. Join them for a dram or five.” -NightshiftMagazine
Some describe their sound as ‘bluesy rock with hip hop rhythms’, but even this kind of juxtapositional statement doesn’t quite cover it. The band’s organic way of songwriting gives you ‘the feeling that every single second has been filled with crafted perfection’ (Right Chord Music). With a sound that brings Jack White or the Black Keys to mind, Little Brother Eli take strong and powerful vocals, growling guitar lines and gritty, biting solos to create their own twist on Alternative Rock.
The band was formed in Oxford during early 2013 by bassist Josh Rigal and vocalist Alex Grew. They were soon joined by Linus Taylor & Adam Stowe on guitar and Benji Page on drums before releasing their Debut EP in May the same year.
"Jinnwoo is the most singular new folk talent I've heard in some time" - The Independent
"Confessional gothic Folk" - The Guardian
"Jinnwoo is a true original" - Clash
"Conviction gives you a great look into the psych-tinged mindset of the band, with reverb drenched guitars and pounding drums and brings to mind legendary acts like The Fall, while maintaining an almost hypnotic approach to songwriting, which leaves the guitar-lines being stuck in your head for hours afterward." - Craig Hardy // Slatethedisco
"This band have a sound like no-other, a neatly formed blend of power, pace, discipline, energy and a brooding attitude, a sound that bands like Eagulls and Parquet Courts could only dream of harnessing." - Badluck
Post punk group from Cambridge has been described as good and often very bad. Line up including saxophone and at times two drummers. All around sixth form age.
