San Diego’s Little Hurricane ARE BACK with third album “Same Sun Same Moon”.
Little Hurricane‘s narrative echoes the tale of a momentous journey: Formed in San Diego, having recently resumed playing drums after an eight-year hiatus, CC placed a musicians-wanted ad on Craigslist. Among the myriad of respondents was Tone, a studio engineer who’d worked with artists ranging from John Paul Jones to Gwen Stefani. The two musicians were neighbors who had never met, and bonded over mutual interests including the blues, unusual and vintage gear, and their individual experiences playing in high school jazz bands.
Quick to follow, Little Hurricane won three San Diego Music Awards, including Album of the Year for 2011 debut “Homewrecker”. Little Hurricane’s explosive live show soon landed them slots at major festivals including Austin City Limits and Lollapalooza, and garnered media attention from outlets including Rolling Stone, which profiled them in an extensive behind-the-scenes piece at SXSW 2012.
Little Hurricane incorporates new timbres and a broader emotional scope on “Same Sun Same Moon”, changes that underscore the band’s desire to transcend it’s dirty blues roots. This evolution is especially evident on first single “OTL,” a love song woven from understated keyboards and intertwined vocals. Married in summer 2016, the creative partners elected to openly share their happiness with listeners for the first time.
“Little Hurricane might be a duo, but they have a big sound and they aren’t afraid to get messy.”–Rolling Stone
“Packs as big of a punch, if not more, than a four or five-piece band.”–PASTE
