EDITORS’ NOTES

The Sydney, Australia–based all-female trio Little May garnered more than a million Soundcloud plays with singles such as “Boardwalks,” “Hide,” and “Dust,” which are assembled here as their self-titled debut EP for American audiences. Their gorgeous, low-key, and shimmering shoegazing folk-rock certainly brings the melody and the mood that rewards headphone listening. Aussie critics call them “ghost folk” and labeled them as an act to watch. The vocal combinations of Hannah Field, Liz Drummond, and Annie Hamilton create the aura. However, the trio also aren’t afraid of larger, colorful arrangements, as “Hide” breaks part the initial haze of “Dust” to cover greater ground.

About Little May

Indie folk trio Little May weave breezily elaborate acoustic musicianship with fleecy vocal harmonies into a moody elegance that resembles a mix of First Aid Kit and Lord Huron. All self-taught musicians who had attended the same high school, Liz Drummond, Hannah Field, and Annie Hamilton formed the group in Sydney, Australia in 2012. They were playing music festivals and selling out headlining shows in Sydney by the following year, and released an eponymous EP in 2014. Little May signed with Capitol Records later that year, and their debut full-length, For the Company, arrived in October 2015. Co-produced by Aaron Dessner of the National, it added electronics to the mix without disturbing their patented wistfulness. ~ Marcy Donelson
