Track Of The Day: Little Fish
It all started four years ago in an Oxford fish and chip shop. Now Little Fish (no mention of tiny chips, eh?) are playing with the likes of Them Crooked Vultures, Alice In Chains and Hole. And the band provide the latest Track Of The Day. Check out all the Tracks Of The Day.
The band feature vocalist/guitarist Julia ‘Juju’ Sophie and drummer Neil ‘Naz’ Greenaway. An appearance at the Glastonbury Festival in 2007 led to a deal with Custard Records, owned by Linda Perry (who’s been associated with Courtney Love and Kelly Osbourne, among others). An EP, Darling Dear, came out last year and new single Am I Crazy? is out on June 14.
“The song is an emotional expression of the pain you can go through when falling in love with someone – hence the ‘Am I Crazy? line,” explains Juju, who’s been compared to Grace Slick and Patti Smith. “This refers to the fact that the person singing the song thinks that they are insane to be in love. The song is a cry for help – it is screaming, help me! I’m falling in love with you, you are driving me crazy. Ultimately, the person singing the song wishes that they had never fallen in love in the first place.”
